Alan Barnicle, a Phd student at the University of Wisconsin and assistant in UW's nationally known IT department, either calls me out over Mozilla's and Khan Academy tax status - - or discovers a disturbing new situation of for-profit entities pretending to be educational non-profits. Which is it?
Clearly, both are technically non-profits. But I cannot find a Board of Directors for Mozilla, can you? And I would like to see the salary of the CEOs of both, as I will guess they both make salaries common in the for-profit sector and very uncommon in the non-profit sector.
This is part of a disturbing trend of for-profiteers trying to undermine public education, including continuing education. We have seen a major decline in public participation in continuing education over the last two decades due solely to economic inequality.
