ICYMI ~ Scott Walker, WI union busting and ALEC refresher via Diane Ravitch
If you want to get rid of public education, unions, and the teaching profession, Scott Walker should be your candidate. As this article shows, he dances to ALEC’s tune.
He prides himself for breaking public sector unions in Wisconsin. At one campaign stop, he said that his victory over the unions proved that he could beat terrorism.
He is a wrecking ball for public education. He has expanded charters and vouchers. He is a cheerleader for privatization.
He is ALEC’s boy.
What is ALEC? Read here. It is the organization that works on behalf of deregulation, corporate profits, and privatization. It writes model legislation for states. Inexplicably, the IRS allows it non-political, charitable (c3) status, although it is deeply partisan.
