Mercedes Schneider here reviews the extensive agenda that ALEC has for reshaping education in the audited States.

Unlike Bill Gates, who works in tandem with the United States Department of Education to direct national policy, ALEC works through state legislators. ALEC writes model legislation, working through its committee structure, and its members submit them in their states. If the states are ultra-reactionary, chances are that much of their education (and other) legislation comes right from ALEC.

Be informed. Be aware.
