Ann...where is ORTA's mention of ALEC to your members?

John Curry to Ann Hanning, March 17, 2012
In looking through ORTA's website I find no reference to the American Legislative Exchange Council's efforts to stifle public education while promoting the privatization of education and subverting of educational tax moneys to the private sector.
You are aware of this, aren't you? I'll bet thousands of your members aren't. Remember how hesitant your organization was to speak out against Issue 2....your group waited until about one week before the past November election to finally take a stance and speak out against Issue 2, didn't they? How long will they wait before they take a stance against ALEC? Once again your organization is "a dollar short and [especially] a day late."
