ALEC ranks Missouri schools 47th in quality

This report from Columbia KOMU shows the dangers of reporting on issues that you do not understand. The report notes that Missouri finished 47th on the American Legislative Exchange Council's ranking of the nation's schools.

It makes no effort whatsoever to explain what ALEC is and the basis for its ranking- if you don't follow reform the way ALEC wants it, with more charter schools, no tenure for teachers, and vouchers giving public money to private schools then your ranking is low.
