So why would a government interested in economic growth cut education so dramatically?

Over the past few weeks since the budget was announced, I've heard a lot of people suggest that the UCP is promoting some sort of evangelical Christian agenda with these cuts to education, but I don't think that's quite right.

Rather, the ideology behind these cuts is much more transparent — and even more troubling. The UCP government is showing itself to be anti-intellectual and fundamentally opposed to the voices of teachers and academics.
