Each year in October, UnKoch My Campus coordinates a National Day of Action that focuses on building public awareness of the impact of the Koch network within institutions of education and our broader democracy. This year, we will take collective action and reach out to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, requesting that he address the issue of dark money in education, all the way from Kindergarten through college. Our K-12 and Critical Race Theory reports have shown us the role dark money’s influence has in destabilizing our democracy, advancing climate denial, and prioritizing private profits over people and our planet.  Join us October 28th and 29th! We want to make sure Secretary Cardona knows about the impact of the Koch network and how they are leveraging our institutions of education to spread climate disinformation and destabilize our democracy."

Unfettered capitalism is not democracy anddemocracy is not unfettered capitalism.

As a "Secretary of Education", what rock could Cardona be under, to have missed all that has been explainedin the publications of (drum-roll) DIANE RAVITCH?

What planet is he on to require a message of,
Earth to Cardona, MONEY dark or otherwise,
has corrupted our society?

Has he really missed the memos?

"The top 1% of Americans control $41.52 trillion, according to the Federal Reserve. That's roughly 16 times more wealth than the bottom 50%."ORSanders:

"The top one-tenth of one percent owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. The 50 wealthiest people in this country own more wealth than the bottom half of Americans 165 million people. Since 1985, the bottom 90% of Americans have seen their share of our nation's wealth
DECLINE."

"It ain't what you don't know that causes trouble.
It's what you know for sure that ain't so."

There's only one acceptable approach to public schools and it is the ed reform agenda and that may never be questioned or revisited, even after twenty years of lockstep following their directives?

Insanity. Public schools are crazy to go along with it. No private school would ever take direction from people who are ideologically opposed to the existence of private schools- why do public schools have to?
