"Get Bloomberg out of our schools"

That’s the title of John Yanno’s report of the demonstration at Tweed last Tuesday (July 8th) in the Socialist Worker.

NEW YORK–A multiracial group of 200 parents, teachers, students and community members descended on “Tweed,” the New York City Department of Education building, to demand an end to mayoral control of the city’s public schools. . . .

. . . Sam Coleman of the Grassroots Education Movement (GEM) decried the constant barrage of tests teachers are forced to give their students, telling the crowd that “test prep is not education” . . .
