All across the country students, parents, educators, and community leaders are teaming up to get the word out about the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and its destructive anti-children and anti-public education agenda.

ALEC is privately funded and it’s members are some of the most ultra-conservative, right-wing state lawmakers from across the nation and many huge corporations. It’s also made up of foundations and think tanks that support a free market and limited government. These groups work together, in secret, to promote and protect the interests of the 1-percent. ALEC uses money from its wealthy donors to wine and dine state lawmakers and, in exchange, these lawmakers promote its “model legislation” back home.
As pointed out last week by Education Votes, ALEC is using vouchers to dismantle public schools and, in the process, destroying the best chance for all children to have access to a quality education.
Now it’s time for you to spread the word. Education Votes and Stand up to ALEC are using social media to bring attention to ALEC and its negative impact on public education, but we need your help. Share the graphics below on your Facebook and Twitter accounts and let your community know that ALEC is putting the future of our children and their education in jeopardy.
