From ALEC Exposed:

Through ALEC, corporations, ideologues, and their politician allies voted to spend public tax dollars to subsidize private K-12 education and attack professional teachers and teachers’ unions by:

  • Promoting voucher programs that drain public schools of resources by using taxpayer dollars to subsidize private school profits, and specifying that those schools must remain unregulated. Voucher programs have been pushed in the following ways:

My recommendation is to contact these legislators and ask them if they are still part of the ALEC organization. If they answer in the affirmative, don’t vote for them!

    I am only one person getting out as much information as I can. I am am also a single parent with two jobs.

    The best action you can take is to do your own investigations before voting. A simple Google can do the trick.

    By the way, I have posted on the ALEC reps in our state before.

    Why am I reading this today of all days? I am very sad to have voted for two of these candidates. People, we need to get the word out prior to election day. Most people vote by mail much earlier.
