Bakan doesn't always trot out convincing evidence for all his assertions. But he's convincing nonetheless: corporations eschew safety and considerations for children's well-being in order to maximize profit in the short term. Sounds about right. His take on the standardized testing companies ought to give school reformers pause. Ought to, anyway.
