Do you know about the "General Education Board" that was set up by the Rockefeller Foundation in the first years of this century? I think the Ford Foundation and the Carnegie Foundaiton were also involved. But it was basically set up in order to steer the school curriculum in the USA in a certain direction that would be favourable to monopolistic big business. If you don't know about it I'll search for the information I have on disk and post it here or e-mail it. The Rockefeller Foundation was also particularly instrumental in steering health care (through the establishment & funding of medical schools and universities) into becoming just a monopolistic-dispensary for their pharmaceutical products in the first decades of this century.
