How is the Common Core/ High Stakes Testing/ Privatization Hoax related to the Shock Doctrine that has been used worldwide to create austerity (sequestration) measures while shifting billions of tax dollars into the pockets of a few billionaires & their multinational corporations, hedge fund & equity fund managers and assorted tax free foundations?

Lance Fialkoff has the shortest, most focused description possible.

1) Manufacture crisis: budget, edu-performance and/or consequences of NCLB/grant compliance failure (measured against often unattainable standards)—>
2) Close neighborhood public schools—>
3) Replace with charter schools linked to private CMOs (Charter Management Organizations), corporate eduservice providers (Pearson) and for-profit online learning. Staff with TFA-temps and indebted recent college graduates—>
4) Real estate developers feast on the land once occupied by neighborhood schools—>
