That nasty, dirty ole profit motive and Memphis Schools

Bill Gates, along with many others, produced a computer operating system that made personal computers easy to use.

The result: customers voluntarily gave Bill Gates company LOTS of money.

The result: Bill Gates company made HUGE profits.

The result: Bill Gates decided to take the wealth created by those huge profits and give it away to LOTS of people.

The result: Memphis City Schools have an incentive to change the way they have been operating for many, many years. A way of operating that has failed tens of thousands of students year after year after year.
