Mad scientists, cont’d

I may have to start a new post label for Clockwork Orange analogies. Here’s the description of a $498,055 grant funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through Clemson University:
Purpose: to work with members of the Measuring Effective Teachers (MET) team to measure engagement physiologically with Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) bracelets which will determine the feasibility and utility of using such devices regularly in schools with students and teachers
Forget about reducing class size. This is where our Corporate Reforming Overlords think the future lies.
