Our Schools Are Being Privatized: Who's Doing it and How?

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.
