How Unions Came to Support ESSA

We know that much of the rationale for the NEA/AFT/NPE support of ESSA comes from the need to support the Clinton agenda, which is, of course, the Gates agenda, the Broad agenda, etc.  

But long before Hillary became Wall Street's most recent neolib darling, however, there were other reasons for AFT/NEA support for corporate education support that had to do, specifically, with The Union Reform Network's (TURN's) corporate cancer that is metastasizing inside the "teachers' unions." 

The pages below are from this document written by an associate prof and a doctoral student at Rutgers, who were paid by the Gates Foundation for their propaganda.  Of course, look for the stars on the Acknowlegement page below to see who else is thanked.

If you have any inkling that the TURN cancer is spreading in your state or town, please contact me.  I am doing some research that is not sponsored by the Gates Foundation.  It is not sponsored at all.
