Let me ask you, just what is your "vision for education?" Is it sending a bunch of rich Americans overseas to teach all the poor people how to educate their children, even in their oh so deplorable conditions? Does it have to do with further managerializing and bureaucratizing education with your "crucial" financial skills? Is it further driving the field away from any semblance of soul or philosophical seriousness by conceptualizing it as an "investment" and teaching others to do the same, presumably so that they can compete in the ubiquitous "competitive global economy?" What a shocker that you have been embraced by the bastions of neoliberal evil that push these types of agendas in the US. Congratulations.
You may be right that I can come off as cynical or even angry, but it is, at least in this case, because people like you, who have just bought wholesale and without question the dominant discourse about education, have hijacked a field that I care about.
