The GOP's free-market reforms are aimed at public education

INDYweek excerpt
Ramming through the education reforms is like a game of whack-a-mole. "If all the moles pop up at once, there is no way the person [i.e. progressive education advocates] with the mallet can get them all," reads an ALEC strategy guide on education policy. "Instead of being forthright and aggregating all of the reforms into one education bill, they are making it difficult to see," says Patty Williams of Public Schools First NC, an organization that advocates for progressive education policy. "It's just a way of not being transparent to the public. We should be proposing laws in a way that's easy to understand."
