Children of the CodeIn the era of Big Data, children are tracked, analyzed and evaluated from birth - not only by corporations, but now, by the school system, as one father and educator illustrates in this graphic essay.

For a more immersive experience, readers will find documentation and links to further reading embedded within in the images.

See Adam and Dan on Truthout Interviews discussing their last comic, "The Gates Foundation Education Reform Hype Machine." For previous graphic essays on education at Truthout by Adam Bessie, "This School Is Not a Pipe" (with Josh Neufeld); "The Disaster Capitalism Curriculum: The High Price of Education Reform" (with Dan Archer: "Part I: Washington D.C."; "Part II: New Orleans"; "Part III: Finland") and "Automated Teaching Machine: A Graphic Introduction to the End of Human Teachers" (with Arthur King).
