Earlier today, the National Association of Charter School Authorizers announced that it will “not be renewing our membership in [the American Legislative Exchange Council] when it expires next month,” joining fifteen other organizations which have quit the conservative group responsible for pushing model state legislation on a number of conservative issues, including voter suppression and the so-called “Stand Your Ground” laws. NACSA joins Kaplan, Procter & Gamble, Yum! Brands, five Pennsylvania legislators, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Reed Elsevier, American Traffic Solutions, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kraft, Intuit, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Wendy’s, Mars, Inc., Arizona Public Service, and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in dropping ALEC.
