A UWEC foreign language professor examined the flaws of the privatization of public schools, and how these schools and their methods are affecting not only the English language learning students, but their parents as well. A top priority of politicians in the United States over the past 20 years has been privatizing public schools by using magnet schools and voucher systems, which allow the wealthy to pay for private schooling with their taxes. In Qatar, a Middle Eastern country, problems have been arising involving private schooling that allows the elite the best of the best in schooling, while not giving much opportunity to those whose test scores aren't high. The students in the less elite schools are receiving an education from educators that may not even be licensed, and aren't forced to follow a curriculum, slowing down the children's reading, writing and development skills.
