1. some of the things she describes are what they do on reality TV shows

mocking, ranking, humiliation, inhuman tests, and the like. Criticizing performance and behaviors in front of your peers. Claiming that Donald Trump has some magical business savvy that "apprentices" desperately need when what really worked for Trump was being born on third base.

Standardized tests and punishing those who don't test well are already part of the mix here, thanks in part to MicroSoft and their pushing the 'stacked ranking' system onto schools.

The name "Race to the Top" implies that most students will lose AND that we are okay with that by design.
