The media mogul is counting on future revenues from his educational branch to help shore up the finances of his newspaper and publishing division as it is split off later this year from the conglomerate's vast holdings in television and entertainment.Disingenuous in the extreme. What happens when business drives education? Profits, and efficiencies of scale. These folks see public education as the next profit center. There is a thin veneer of public good, but the point is profit.
