The education stuff starts at around the 14 minute mark, with the main example being the overthrow public education in Tennessee by a virtual school operator.
What I’ve been too lazy to determine on my own is this: is our new unelected state charter school authority based on an ALEC template? Or is that something that came out of Race to the Top? Or is there even a difference?
ALEC, President Obama’s Education Department - what’s the difference?
Not that there aren’t some real conspiracies. Thankfully, they tend to fail due to their internal contradictions and inability to control their own actors. But these people live in a world where literally everyone is out to get them and there are no other agendas besides teachers versus the world. Wonder how that mindset gets cultivated?
