From the 1960s to the present, the USA’s largest teachers’ union has been collaborating with multinational ed-tech corporations and the global governance arms of UNESCO. This ongoing alignment may reveal ulterior motives behind the NEA’s efforts to lobby the US government to force reliance upon remote virtual learning.
For more than five years, I have been writing reports that document the dangers of the encroaching corporatization of public education through ed-tech privatization. Now, under the duress of COVID panic, public schools are rolling over to the globalist Tech Barons of the e-learning industry, just as these technocratic oligarchs of the ed-tech empire ramp up their corporate takeover of education systems. This takeover is largely occurring through public-private “distance learning” contracts that are substituting human teachers with data-mining artificial intelligence (AI) while also replacing brick-and-mortar schoolhouses with virtual classrooms online.
