Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
In San Francisco’s public schools, Marc Benioff, the chief executive of Salesforce, is giving middle school principals $100,000 “innovation grants” and encouraging them to behave more like start-up founders and less like bureaucrats.
In Maryland, Texas, Virginia and other states, Netflix’s chief, Reed Hastings, is championing a popular math-teaching program where Netflix-like algorithms determine which lessons students see.
And in more than 100 schools nationwide, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief, is testing one of his latest big ideas: software that puts children in charge of their own learning, recasting their teachers as facilitators and mentors.
In the space of just a few years, technology giants have begun remaking the very nature of schooling on a vast scale, using some of the same techniques that have made their companies linchpins of the American economy. Through their philanthropy, they are influencing the subjects that schools teach, the classroom tools that teachers choose and fundamental approaches to learning.
The involvement by some of the wealthiest and most influential titans of the 21st century amounts to a singular experiment in education, with millions of students serving as de facto beta testers for their ideas. Some tech leaders believe that applying an engineering mind-set can improve just about any system, and that their business acumen qualifies them to rethink American education.

Guinea pigs on a global scale.What could go wrong?
Hitler wrote "whoever has the youth has the future", so what the leftist "education school of thought" is ... is just what Hitler's Nazi Germany did. Hitler’s view on education was that it served a sole purpose – to ensure that a child was loyal to the Nazi state. Today we see that with the New World globalism and the "climate change" agenda. Controlling education is a way of taking over the minds of children and is now implementing the leftist ideology using the minds of mush as a political tool for the future. Education is the tool being used to promote globalism, political thought by intimidation and implementation, and loyal servants to the kings of multiculturalism. Liberty to chose be damned in their world. http://www.theholocaustexplained.org/ks3/life-in-nazi-occupied-euro...
Zuckerberg has the only only concept which *might* work. These Indigo kids are FAR ahead of the adults, though it's not yet acknowledged.
