I think there is! His name rhymes with "shite," and he believed a firm paying minimum wage equivalent could provide acceptable substitute teachers, transferring the "savings" to the firm's profits. So the company makes money, the substitutes aren't hired, and the kids get shafted. Probably their test scores will go down, so then their schools will "fail," and we can scale up to transferring it all to more for profit charters. Everybody wins! Well, not everybody, but, you know.
