Today and tomorrow!!!

•  American Federation for Children, "Trustee" level sponsor of 2011 ALEC Annual Conference[4] ($5,000 in 2010)[5]

An ALEC-sponsored, so-called "education reform" conference is going on there, with a group of far-right extremist politicians, from Chris Christie to Bobby Jindal, who has recently gloated about gutting the schools of Louisiana.

The Koch Brothers funded conference will be held on May 3 and 4 at The Westin Jersey City Newport Hotel, at 479 Washington Boulevard, in Jersey City, New Jersey 07310 · United States •

And to get some idea of the gloating, vicious tone of this gathering, scroll down on this link to see the speakers---including, sadly, Newark "Democrat" (a.k.a. Sellout) Mayor Cory Booker---and the sponsor list, which is a true Rogues Gallery of those who despise everything about our schools and only see them as a "profit" center for private companies.

Please spread the word to gather at the Westin Jersey City Newport Hotel at any time on Thursday or Friday, but especially in front of the hotel at 12 Noon on both days. If you value public education, you'll want to be there.

The luncheon on Friday is the "closing event".
