I read the article Learning in the 21st Century:2011 Trends Update. In this article all I could see as a push toward online education. They seemingly picked favorable data to substantiate their claim that online education is somehow more effective than learning in the classroom. This program is also privately funded. I cannot support private corporations funding education. The Bill Gates of the world have an eye on the education dollar, and they are reviving it though companies like project tomorrow. A simple scroll to the bottom of their website and anyone can see whose funding the project. One must understand that the single motivations of corporations is to make a profit, all the donations, and PR, are simply there to convince the community that they have another agenda. Don't be fooled by corporations, support public education!
