American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and Privatization of Public Schools
I have a new link on my home page, thanks to reader “Jon” – it is to site called ALEC Exposed. ALEC, if you remember, is the American Legislative Exchange Council, they are an ideological and highly partisan group which has been instrumental in writing laws to present to right-wing Tea Party type politicians so they can be advanced in not only the Federal Government but in local and State houses as well.
Pretty neat huh? A ready made Legislation Factory for all things right-wing. Want medical care? Screw you. Want good public education? Sorry. Want women to have the right to choose what to do with their bodies? Sorry again…we don’t support that over here!
The right is well-funded (Google: Koch Brothers political contributions) and well organized…view this video to see how their ‘ready-made’ legislation is shifting or trying to shift public education policy.
