More than 47 Schools Slated for Potential Closure
It’s time to stand up to the attack on public education!
Protest Michael Bloomberg and his puppet school board, the “Panel for Educational Policy.” This administration has overseen the school-closing assault and promoted other attacks on our public school system, including:
– Increasing the number of charter schools colocated with our public schools, causing increased overcrowding.
– Cutting school budgets while NOT providing the support schools need to help students.
– Promoting the use of standardized testing as the only method of evaluating students’ progress and teachers’ effectiveness.
– Threatening to publish teachers’ test scores, despite scandals exposing the tests as inaccurate and flawed.
-Increasing the number of quality teachers in the excessed ATR pool who are denied seniority rights.
-Appointing Chancellors and other high level DOE officials who are not qualified for the job.
Tired of the education deform onslaught against parents, students and teachers?
Make your voices heard! Join the Real Reformers. Protest the Panel for Education Policy. This will be the first of an ongoing series of actions to protest the disastrous educational policies that are trying to dismantle public education
