Chile: what market privatized education looks like

If you want to see where the American educational system is heading, look at Chile.

The system there was set up by Milton Friedman under the military dictatorship 1973-1990 and continues today.

When you look at the Chilean system, it’s scary — if you believe that government is supposed to help the majority of the people (as opposed to the wealthy few).

Diane Ravitch is running a 3-part series by Professor Mario Wassbluth about Chile. It’s chilling reading.
