Kyle Olson demands transparency for everyone but him.

One of Kyle Olson’s Education Action Group cult members wrote me anonymously accusing me of being afraid of transparency.

But the secrecy surrounding EAG gives lack of transparency new meaning.

From the Michigan Education Associations EAG Toolkit:

  • The EAG website is located on servers owned by “Domains by Proxy” a division of Godaddy.com that allows people to anonymously sponsor websites. As a result, anyone who investigates the EAG website will find that the “owner” is located in Scottsdale, Arizona, where DBP is located. Website owners pay a premium to have DBP host their sites.
  • Olson refuses to disclose the EAG’s funding sources or the names of its board members, other than Muskegon activist Jane Missimer, 69. While the site says it is “a group of citizens and school board leaders” it is widely assumed that it is funded by the Mackinac Center in Midland. In fact the EAG Articles of Incorporation state:  “The corporation is to be financed under the following general plan: contributions from corporate foundations and private foundations.”
  • “Unfortunately we don’t know much about Olson’s other anti-union, anti-public school conspirators – while he has no compunction about decrying union PAC dollars going to political candidates, he refuses to disclose who is funding his operations.”
