If you are a parent of public school children; if you care about your local public schools; if you are a teacher or administrator or school board member, you should think twice before shopping at Walmart. 

The Walton Family Foundation spends nearly $200 million every year to undermine public education. It gives to groups that open charters and promote vouchers. It throws a few thou to the Bentonville Public Schools, but the big money is available only to those who want to bust unions and privatize public education.

Every member of the Walton family is a billionaire. Individual members donate generously to the campaigns of privatizers who run for state and local school boards.

Let them enjoy the fruits of the patriarch’s  business genius.

But I suggest that you not give your hard-earned dollars to those who would destroy your local public schools and remove from working people any collective voice in their working conditions.
