What is important to me, is that our people learn what is happening as the privatization goes on!Look at Kentucky RIGHT NOW... Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is moving fast to smash public schools. First, he ousted several members of the state board of education, which promptly ousted the state commissioner of education. The board hired Wayne Lewis, an outspoken charter school advocate as interim state commissioner. Lewis announced that he recommends a state takeover of the state's largest school district, Jefferson County, which includes Louisville. Lewis is an education professor, with no prior experience as a superintendent.

The Demolition of American Educationis ongoing. This book is by Dr Diane Ravitch--FORMER Assistant SECRETARY OF STATE is a research professor of education at New York University and the co-founder of theNetwork for Public Education, a grassroots advocacy organization.

The EDUCATIONAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. owns the media... all of it! The news media will not tell you of the enormous coordinated assault on the 15,880 SEPARATE SCHOOL SYSTEMS IN 52 STATES.

The speed is dizzying.
