Going Public explores the privatization of public education, who’s profiting… and why now?

This is what the GOP in Raleigh has in store for North Carolina’s schools.

It’s an assault on the very idea of public education branded as “reform” because “profit” — the truth — wouldn’t sell. Because like Benedict Arnold multinationals, some of these “patriots” object to paying taxes that don’t redound to their personal and corporate coffers.

Besides, how much education do waiters and gardeners really need anyway?

    http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-united-states-of-alec-a-follow-up/ Moyers talks about the dismantling of public education as part of the ALEC ideology from about 24:00 in this updated version, including a bunch of bills that have been introduced and or passed here. Voter suppression bills too.

    Bingo: The truth is their [conservatives'] main complaint is using government funds to support any program that does not funnel taxpayer dollars to corporations and the wealthy…

    And with hundreds of billions spent in the 50 states each year to educate school children, investors cannot abide that they are not getting — not a piece — but all of that action, and that We the People are giving it away, using their tax dollars, without them getting a whopping cut.
