  •  Just PUblished - On ALEC Connection (6+ / 0-)

    A report on Alternet (just posted minutes ago) about a teacher who infiltrated the ALEC Summit last week includes this paragraph:

    ALEC’s education task force, like all the others, is a mix of state-level elected officials (their so-called “public” members), as well as “private” members: lobbyists from for-profit companies, and lobbyists from corporate-funded think tanks. After greeting each other, Committee Chair and Iowa State Representative Greg Forristall called for some opening remarks from Indiana State Rep. Cindy Noe, who proceeded to tell the room about how wonderfully their new education policies were unfolding in Indiana.
    Yes - The American Legislative Exchange Council is right in the thick of it - destroying public Education in Indiana and across the US.
