This booklet outlines the process of privatization that is taking place in school districts all over the United States, including replacing public schools with charter schools, mandating high-stakes standardized testing, and deprofessionalizing teaching. It shows how the problems we face in 2011 stem from Bush-era policies such as No Child Left Behind. It also documents a sneaky aspect: billionaires and corporations creating "astroturf" or fake grassroots organizations to help build support for privatization.
