+ - Gates-Backed High Tech High Flunks Out

Submitted by

theodp writes "On Sunday, Bill Gates' Washington Post Op-Ed on How to Keep America Competitive said the U.S. must build on the success of schools like the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-backed High Tech High to remain competitive in the global economy and reduce the need for H-1B visas. Try telling that to High Tech High Bayshore parents and students, whose tears and desperate pleas fell on deaf ears Friday as the board of directors of the High Tech High Foundation voted unanimously to close their school. Perhaps someone at the Post — say Director Melinda French Gates — should see that a little fact-checking is done when they give Bill a bully pulpit."

No directory.
