Tax money diverted despite public opposition.

from PR Watch

ALEC, the corporate organization providing legislation models for the extreme right, is focusing on bills which bypass state constitutional provisions to funnel tax dollars to private schools, writes Brendan Fischer for PR Watch.  These draft bills have been  introduced in 43 states and the District of Columbia in the first six months of 2013.  The goals of the legislation include funneling more public money to unaccountable for-profit, virtual and religious schools, and a requirement to present topics such as climate change as "controversies" with more than one side.
