16. Well ever since Brown vs. Board of Education
Children have been systematically removed from public education. Funding has decreased in all phases of public education. Once all children had the ability to receive an equal education under the law in public schools public schools were now somehow bad. And parents start listening and removing their children. then after they started with the schools they worked the kids. They put drugs,guns,and violence around their schools, and made them afraid to go. Well that wasn't enough, they had to destroy public schools once and for all. They would need to find a way to break one of the biggest unions around. The Federation of Teachers. They almost had the UAW, but with successful maneuvering they were able to get the UAW to sacrifice until it bled. The teachers were going to be a push over. To break the Teachers union would mean that only students who could afford to pay would get the best teachers. Hence this would create an ever ending low-wage work force.
