Update: Keeping The Coalitions And Campaigns Straight
Not content with letting EdWeek and Education Next be the only ones to write about all the education advocacy going on -- Scholastic Administrator (which sponsors this blog) has a sidebar explainer about the rise of c3s, c4s, PACs, and superPACs: PACs Go To School.
But not all CANs are alike, I've learned just this morning: ConnCAN isn't organizationally part of 50CAN, but rather it's own c3. ConnCAN is also a "coalition," while 50CAN and all the other state CANs are "campaigns."
Want to walk down memory lane? Read my Spring 2011 interview with 50CAN head Marc Porter Magee, right when things were just launching.
