...Saw this piece of shit while looking for a job.
Selling education solutions? Like selling the tax-paying public on the idea that they need to pay fucking taxes in order to fund the freaking cornerstone of our democracy, PUBLIC EDUCATION?
OK so then probably...
Selling the folks in charge of education policy from "on high" on the idea of letting public education actually BE the cornerstone of the fucking democracy FOR ONCE? Instead of a sorting tool dreamed up by Thomas Jefferson to separate the poor-ish white males who were fit to lead from the rest of us schlubs? (you know, the women, the POC, the Native people, the immigrants, those who don't perform well on standardized bullshit tests... raise your hand if you're one of us!!)
WHAT THEN? WE ARE DYING OF SUSPENSE!!!
Welllll....This company sells facilities maintenance solutions. Specifically to the education market. Their services can help solve problems of inequity in schooling. No really...
According to ABM:
"Lack of equity in funding is leading to imbalances, including issues with teacher pay and lack of capital for meeting the physical health and technological needs of a productive learning environment. Unequal funding, due in large part to the continuing reliance of school budgets on local taxes, is the subject of legislative and legal fights nationwide, while local district leaders look for tools needed to address funding issues and achieve better equity for students."
