Gloria La Riva on Education

Party for Socialism and Liberation nominee for President


Privatizing schools is just to reap profit

The education system is failing. Public schools are being privatized to reap greater profits for owners.

The National Assessment of Education Progress--a body that administers standardized tests to evaluate the country's progress in education--recently said that the NCLB law has hurt education standards. Reading proficiency for eighth-grade African American students has dropped from 13 to 12 percent. Proficiency dropped from 41 to 39% for eighth-grade white students.
