They don't care about this country, the American people, or anything this country holds dear including public institutions. Everything is to be subject to looting by the elites, including education. The way to do it is to con the public these institutions are failing, therefore making them ripe for the picking.
These criminals peddling this neoliberal ideology, an ideology infesting both political parties, don't care if their ideas are full of shit. What's important is to destroy the institutions by any means possible.
Truthfully, they need to belong in jail, not in positions of power.
They are nothing more than gangsters.
