Outspent and outgunned by the billionaire-backed ed deformers, we've been seeing signs of more effective fight backs. I believe our GEM produced film response (now online) to Waiting for Superman (The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman) was one of the first effective shots fired which explains why it has resonated with so many people. We really started out thinking about doing a commercial but it turned into over an hour film. And of course it was produced by we amateurs so there is no slickness to match what the other side can do. That costs so much money.
But here is short piece that matches them in every way produced by Brave New Media about ALEC supported education titled
Which CEO made $5 million stealing your kid's lunch money?
Here is the tag line:
ALEC is working to ensure that public education dollars get diverted to private profits. Their approach is working -- for them. Not so much for the students who pay the price in the form of a subpar education and poor performance.
