The Way Bill Gates Makes Things Work
Take a look at the colleges using these texts. You don't have to be paranoid about Gates' intentions to note that they are mostly community colleges.
Note the absence of Harvard, Stanford, Yale, et al.
Another thing to note: Kathy Tyner is Vice President of Academic Affairs at Southwestern College in Chula Vista, CA, where the faculty were persuaded to take a 5% pay cut on the promise that this would save jobs. On the day the deal was ratified, at the urging of the union chiefs, the union prezzie became a dean and 700 classes were cut.
Oh, and the college vice-presidents received a $25,000 raise.
Next item on the agenda---free textbooks. From Gates.
