Re: “Scathing report confirms what a disaster Idaho’s Schoolnet is

There is a confusion of terms in this discussion. Most people have a sense of what a liberal is. The term neoliberal is different. It refers to the opposite of a liberal.

Neoliberals are associated with laissez-faire economic liberalism. They support extensive economic liberalization policies such as privatization, fiscal austerity, deregulation, free trade, and reductions in government spending in order to enhance the role of the private sector in the economy. Neoliberalism is famously associated with the economic policies introduced by Thatcher in the UK and Reagan in the US.

'Republican Conservatives' are actually often also 'neoliberals.' Liberals are almost never neoliberals.

The irony here is that the contracts handed over management of Idaho's student data to a foreign entity, Pearson, which is a British company.

Was that a good idea to begin with?
