This comprehensive overview of the movement to destroy public education (DPE)  describes the methods & names the leaders--a  small group of billionaires undercutting democracy and privatizing public schools. It is financed by several large non-profit, tax-exempt  organizations.  Without this spending, there would be no wide-spread public school privatization. The game plan, aims for the same result: The dismantling of democratic control of public schools.  “Almost all of the education reform initiatives coming from the DPE forces are bunkum, but their hostility to democracy convinces me they prefer a plutocracy or an oligarchy to democracy. The idea that America’s education system was ever a failure is an illusion. It is by far the best education system in the world plus it is the foundation of American democracy. If you believe in American ideals, protect our public schools.”
