An Alabama lawmaker says he aims to shut down a little-known education foundation that may have brought in less money than the state's school system spent running it.

   State Sen. Gerald Allen, R-Tuscaloosa, has pre-filed a bill that would disband the Foundation for Local Schools.

   The Anniston Star reports (http://bit.ly/162tY7S) that the foundation is a nonprofit set up by the Legislature to accept donations from wealthy people and corporations interested in setting up trusts to help fund public education.
