Wow! Saltman is on the cutting edge of the corporatization of public education and critical pedagogy! Read this if you can stomach being exposed to the myriad of ways our once top-tier educational system in the world has been and continues to be reduced to a dilapidated excuse for education and, more importantly, another space for capital to make a profit off the public while consuming critical spaces where Americans learn and can participate in true democracy.
