Boliva to Bill Gates: You Can Keep Your Chickens!

on June 18, 2016

This is yet another example of Bill Gates deciding he is an expert on something he knows absolutely nothing about.
When you have incredible wealth, nobody ever tells you “no” any more, so you begin to believe that all your ideas are pure gold.

Diane Ravitch's blog

Bill Gates recently advised poor people to raise chickens to improve their lives.

He had Africa in mind, but he also offered chickens to Bolivia.

The Bolivian government was offended by Gates’ offer. Bolivia raises millions of chickens and exports them to the world.

“How can he think we are living 500 years ago, in the middle of the jungle not knowing how to produce?” Bolivian Development Minister Cesar Cocarico told journalists. “Respectfully, he should stop talking about Bolivia.”

Wouldn’t it be great if public schools and superintendents could respond like that to Bill Gates? Something like this: “We are professional educators and we know what we are doing. Please don’t offer money to try out your experiments on our children. Please take your advice and your money elsewhere.”

    I think from now on that whenever I hear anything about Gates my only mental response will be: You Can Keep Your Chickens. 🙂
