Saving Public Schools From Privateers

DOWNLOAD THE PRINTABLE FLYER

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

Panelists:
Paul Hetland, RTA, Rochester Coalition for Public Education
Eamonn Scanlon, MetroJustice, Alliance for Quality Education
Ericka Simmons, RCSD Parents Advisory Council

This program is free and open to the public
