When Education has been Transformed into Business

Schools are to educate the children to be better people for their future. We all know this purpose, but do you really think that all schools still have this purpose? We can see the private schools have transformed themselves to become a source of income for the owner and therefore, schools and all the educations in them are transformed into business. Not only do the schools ask parents to pay so much money, but they do not give the money back to the children in the form of education.

Many private schools view the children, not as students, but as gold mines. There are few obvious examples. There is a private school that creates a special package for playgroup students at the admission, the package with or without iPad. But the iPad will not be used at school. So what is the purpose? Of course, to get more income for the school. Some schools are creating special days, for example a day where everyone needs to wear classic American clothing and the school will rent and sell them the clothes and other accessories. If schools are no longer a place where our children can get more education, then where else?
