The Koch-funded Mercatus Center is calling for the deregulation of public education. The right-wing Heritage Foundation’s “National Coronavirus Recovery Commission,” which includes an executive with the for-profit online education corporation K12 Inc., is whispering about Education Savings Accounts in the Trump administration’s ear.

As Carol Burris wrote in a recent Network for Public Education email: “In short, those who would privatize our public schools are attempting to capitalize on a national health and economic crisis.”
