Coming soon to a school board near you — the takeover

Chilling story from Denver that is emblematic of the Republican and billionaire effort to take over public school districts as a step toward corporatizing and voucherizing and charterizing them.

A tentative step in that direction in Little Rock a few years ago blew up in the face of the sponsoring Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce, but the battle isn't over.

We haven't had out-of-state CEOs writing $25,000 checks for School Board races as described in the linked Salon article or high-dollar personal attacks on candidates — yet. But the Walton expenditures in Arkansas on related activities are in the tens of millions already and show signs only of increasing.

You have been warned.
