    •  Charles Koch has made donations to countless (11+ / 0-)

      universities throughout the country, and has been known to try to influence hiring and curriculum decisions.  He gave $6 million of the $26 million needed to renovate the basketball arena at Wichita State (his alma mater).  The arena is now named after him.  

      Gregg Marshall, the Wichita State basketball coach, recently said that the person he most admires is the "incredibly brilliant" Charles Koch.  Hearing that Coach Marshall admires a whiny billionaire who inherited a massive fortune from his John Birch Society-founding father was enough to make me glad that Wichita State lost to Kentucky in the NCAA tournament, even though I have always rooted for Kentucky to lose.

      Most of the politicians who successfully voted to abolish teacher tenure in Kansas public schools and to give public money to support private schools and home schooling are funded by the Koch Brothers, who have been pushing such initiatives all over the country.
