Must watch video: When private interests dictate public policy

Sabrina Stevens, AKA Teacher Sabrina, crashes a meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) which has promoted controversial laws nationwide like Parent Trigger and Stand Your Ground. What she says next speaks exactly to a host of situations in Philadelphia including the Boston Consulting Group:

“I see a a majority of private sector members in this body completely outweighing the democratically elected people who are supposed to be making our laws . . I also see a group of people who are not at all connected to public schools talking about issues that affect public schools . . I have a huge problem with how this process works. And I can tell you that those of us who have to live through these policies are not going to sit by quietly as you push this on other communities, other schools, and other students.”
