The ALEC file: School 'reform'

Posted By on Wed, Jun 20, 2012 at 6:56 AM

With the Arkansas legislature already heavily infiltrated with disciples of the Koch Bros.' American Legislative Exchange Council and the promise of more on the way, I think it's worth keeping up in advance of what you're likely to see the ALECites do in coming legislative sessions.

The indispensable Diane Ravitch rounds up how ALEC cookie cutter legislation is being used around the country to advance the billionaires' school agenda. Some of the stuff has already made an appearance in Arkansas.
