ALEC is holding an education reform academy in the Jacksonville area beginning Friday; the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida is calling the meeting a “democracy killer” and suggests some Florida lawmakers may attend.

My guest today is Susan Smith – she’s president of the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida. We are taking your calls about education bills in Florida and the role of the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC.

One bill introduced by state Rep. Rachel Burgin apparently accidentally included a statement about ALEC's mission when it was first proposed.

This afternoon when I lined up the topic for this program I invited a representative from ALEC to be a guest on this show, but there's been no response.
