Most of the cartoons I have found about business involvement in K-12 schools scold corporations for seeking profits in schools and students.
Some cartoonists see business-inspired reformers reshaping school practices and how teachers are paid. Such as the following.
And other cartoonists see the pervasiveness of economist thinking in policymaking (i.e., importance of building human capital to better compete globally) and the spread of market-based ideas in schools and among children.
It goes without saying that I have yet to find any cartoons pointing out contributions of business to schools.
This month’s cartoons on different topics linked to school reform and classroom practice has been an on-going feature of my blog since September 2011. For readers who wish to see previous monthly posts of cartoons, see: “Digital Kids in School,” “Testing,” “Blaming Is So American,” “Accountability in Action,” “Charter Schools,” and “Age-graded Schools,” Students and Teachers, Parent-Teacher Conferences, Digital Teachers, Addiction to Electronic Devices, and Testing, Testing, and Testing.
