A US public school teacher stands up to corporate education reformers in this clip The teacher, Sabrina Joy Stevens, intervenes in a meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) - a body supported and run in the US by corporations to develop legislation, which will further their business interests and overall aims. Corporations like Glaxo Smith Klein and Coca Cola pay or have paid to be part of the forum which devises new legislation including in education. Politicians also take part - they gain the perks of attending the forums with their families as well as mixing with the movers and shakers in the corporate world. In the past the Gates foundation has provided funds to ALEC to help it produce teacher evaluation legislation. In the above video clip a public school teacher points out how thoroughly undomacratic the proceedings of this organisation are and the baleful effects it is having on public schools, their pupils and their teachers.
