How Intel Betrays America's Educational Future
Intel continues to leverage cheap foreign labor while deserting the American labor foundation that made Intel what it is today, and Intel operate as an economic traitor to the United States by providing significant investment in training of foreign students and teachers, while failing to support the US educational system to the same extent! How?
Read Intel's own words By Circuit News Reporting Team, Asia, Posted June 19, 2003; WW25 on Intel’s worldwide Intranet:
Education in Asia: Intel helps Asian countries sow for the future
“If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.”
“Our success depends on the success of education," says Debjani Ghosh, regional education manager, Intel Asia. "We want to do all we can to equip those who will become the creators and users of new technology, some of whom will join our global workforce.”
Intel has been involved in education since the founding of the company.“However, Intel’s large-scale involvement with education only began in 1989 and has increased dramatically since then,” adds Ghosh.
Early years in Asia
In 1999, Intel saw the need to help local government education agencies in Asia prepare students for life and work in the digital age... Intel heeded Asia’s call. “At the end of 1999, the Intel Innovation in Education started in Asia with the launch of the Intel Teach to the Future program in India,” says Ghosh.
To date, the Intel Teach to the Future program has been launched in eight Asian countries with strong government support. At the end of last year 382,000 Asian teachers were trained, and Intel is on track to train at least 600,000 teachers by year’s end.
But nowhere in these Circuit articles do we see ANY reference to specific training of US teachers!
To determine Intel's depth of commitment re: training of American teachers, FaceIntel searched the Internet and Intel's website and FaceIntel can find NO evidence that Intel is training US teachers or students in anything like the same capacity they are training in Malaysia, China and India!
From Intel’s worldwide Intranet:
"Launched in 2000, Intel Teach to the Future is available today in 26 locations: Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China (Republic of), Costa Rica, Estonia, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States. Intel often collaborates with ministries of education or other government entities to adapt the curriculum for each location.
More than 650,000 teachers worldwide have successfully completed the program. Presented with support from Microsoft Corporation, Intel will invest $100 million in cash, equipment, curriculum development, and program management."
While FaceIntel can find plenty of figures relating to training of significant numbers of FOREIGN teachers FaceIntel can find no specific numbers [within Intel's own published results] enumerating training of AMERICAN teachers! Why?
The reason is the concerted conspiratorial Corporate effort in which Corporations choose to betray the American way of life and to undermine the American standard of living, in order to boost their share price and worldwide earnings. While Corporations boost their bottom line at the expense of American jobs and the American labor market YOUR way of life and standard of living suffers BUT MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL the EDUCATIONAL FUTURE of OUR CHILDREN in the country that built Intel, is sold down the river by:
· Corporations not governed by the American people!
· Corporations not answerable to the American people!
· Corporations with no loyalty to the US market that made them great!
