We Are The 99.99998%

It isn't necessary to overthink the relationship between the Occupy Wall Street movement and education. The most important point is simple and direct: there is too much power, money and influence concentrated in the 1% and not enough democracy. And in this case, we're talking about the true 1% if not 0.1% or 0.001%. Hm... let me do a little math here... 300 million, ed policy being driven by people in the top 30 (Gates, Walton, Buffet, Bloomberg, Zuckerberg, Koch...) that's the top 0.00001%. I guess if we want to include Broad, Murdoch & DeVos we have to knock it down to 0.00002%.
