Are the Koch Brother Brainwashing America’s Students?

The Koch brothers have become synonymous with libertarian and conservative platforms that flex lobbying muscle in American public policy. In a recent twist of events, the Koch brothers have turned their attention to secondary education with their entrepreneurial clubs and curriculum. I was invited onto Huff Post Live to discuss the issues and prospects of such an arrangement. My co-panelists: Christina Wilkie Sumner, Henry Giroux, and Mark Naison have great insights into weather this is old wine in new skins or a new issue with collateral consequences. Give the whole clip a view, we cover a range of topics from Obama’s education platform to the recent decision of the UNCF to accept Koch donations! (Click the picture for a link to the segment.)
