He  keeps encountering the Walton money that flows generously to torpedo public spending for public schools in Massachusetts. n this post, he identifies the malign tentacles of Walton money that is currently engaged in trying to block legislation to increase the funding of public schools in the Bay State. You can’t tell the players without a scorecard,  If you spot a group called Latinos for Education, remember they are a Walton front. When you think of the name Walton, think of a family that has accumulated over $150 billion but abhors unions, detests the minimum wage, and likes to keep their workers underpaid and tightly controlled. And think of a family that is intent on destroying the public schools that 85% of American children attend. How would you describe them? Avaricious. Greedy. Selfish.'
