A new advocacy group, Integrity in Education, was launched last week to expose connections between K-12 public education and for-profit education companies and to counter arguments laid out by groups promoting free-market reforms for education, such as StudentsFirst and Chiefs for Change.

The group is headed by Sabrina Stevens, a former teacher and American Federation of Teachers staffer.

It has received start-up funding from Deborah Sagner, the chairwoman of its board of directors and a philanthropist who heads up the Sagner Family Foundation.
