Well, since it looks like the governments, parents, and students were
all in on it, they wanted their piece of the pie too.
As a parent with kids at the low end of the school system, I shudder.
At least we have (or are in the process of getting, for the youngest)
that nice little cluestick of an "autism spectrum" diagnosis, which
means my kids bring additional Federal funds to whatever school district
they are in, which means school district officials actually listen to us
when we express displeasure. And for both kids, the ASD is mild enough
that with early intervention, we're getting a good handle on it. At
least the money for in-classroom aides and such are helping benefit some
of the other kids who don't have that luxury.
