Saving Public Schools From Privateers
Charter schools, high stakes testing, reduced public funding, assaults on teacher unions. These are among the familiar strategies adopted by corporations, foundations and NGOs which are crippling public education in the United States in the name of “reforming” it.
And teachers, students, parents and other citizens are fighting back. What can we do?
David Hursh, U of R Warner School, will discuss his new book, The End of Public Schools: The Corporate Reform Agenda to Privatize Education
Discussion moderated by Paul Hypolite, NYSUT, RLC Education Committee
Paul Hetland, RTA, Rochester Coalition for Public Education
Eamonn Scanlon, MetroJustice, Alliance for Quality Education
Ericka Simmons, RCSD Parents Advisory Council
