Alert: American Legislative Exchange Council and Faculty Work
The Colorado AAUP’s Ray Hogler recently did a radio talk show on KGNU Boulder about the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and its pernicious effect on state political affairs. Colorado faculty members might want to inform themselves about this group. One idea being promoted by ALEC is a law requiring that faculty hours and pay be posted in an “easily available” web format. Other ALEC contributions include attacks on public sector unions, right to work laws, and the infamous “stand your ground” laws. More information is available here.
