What National Group Is Funding the Pro-Common Core Lawsuit in Louisiana?

July 31, 2014

On July 29, 2014, the Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education (BESE) voted 6 to 4 to become plaintiffs in the pro-Common Core (CCSS) lawsuit whose plaintiffs include nine individuals and the charter management company, Choice Foundation. (Click here for Choice Foundation’s home page. However, the information on their schools has not been updated since 2011.)

The group footing the bill for this lawsuit is a well-funded, national “choice” group known as the Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO).

In my July 22, 2014, post on the issue, I mention that I wrote about BAEO in my book, A Chronicle of Echoesan encyclopedic whistle blower on the exploitation of public education. In Chronicle of Echoes, BAEO shares a chapter with another “pro-choice” group, Parent Revolution.

For those who are considering buying my book– and for those who just would like to know more about the not-so-grass-roots organization that loves charters and vouchers and is ponying up the cash in order to keep CCSS in Louisiana– I would like to offer this opportunity for you to read my chapter on BAEO/Parent Revolution.

BAEO is the group fronting the money for the pro-CCSS Louisiana lawsuit, but go ahead and read also about Parent Revolution.

The experience will be an eye-opener.

Then, once your eyes are opened by way of this single chapter, you might wish to purchase the book (kindle version available here) and read the remaining 23 chapters.

Your “choice.” (Cheesy pun. I know.)

And now, I give you Chapter 20 of A Chronicle of Echoes:

Ch 20 BAEO ParentRev

    I found not only this chapter on the BAEO to be illuminating, but the entire book! Add another “reform” group to the list: Parents for Educational Justice.” The face of this group is Campbell Brown, ex-news anchor with exactly no experience as an educator. She made my stomach turn in her appearance on the Colbert Report Thursday, 7/31, as she refused to indicate which corporation or hedge fund manager was bankrolling her “grassroots” effort to eliminate current tenure laws in New York.
