Profit generating machines

If you want to understand what conservatives have in mind for primary education you only have to look at the health care system. The health care system in the United States has been turned into a huge profit generating machine. This has caused out of control  costs  and overall quality to decline. Health care driven by the profit motive generates a very different  behavior by health care providers , it creates a different incentive system.  No other western country has gone down this road , at least so far.
If the public education system is destroyed a good education will be a privilege of wealth, the same thing conservatives desire for access to health care. But this has an even greater benefit for conservatives, an uneducated population poses far less risk to the maintenance  of privilege for the elite class. It will bring about the desired goal of conservatism,  to shrink the middle class and create an even larger number of poor. Elite privilege is threatened by a large well educated middle class, that’s why conservatives have been implementing  policies designed to increase general poverty. What they are doing isn’t driven by stupidity by the desire to secure and expand  the class privilege of the ownership class.
