It is the antidote to the massive propaganda campaign to push privatization of education in the film “Waiting For Superman” last year. The film was also made by teachers and parents and is an antidote to the pro-privatization propaganda.
The organized coordinated destruction of public education through charter schools and making the schools “profit centers” pushed by the Bill Gates Foundation and the Broad Foundation is a critical issue for all those interested in defending public education.
Teachers from San Francisco will join the discussion following the film.
There will be a Photo display by Kilo of the more than 70,000 educators and other members of the Seccion 22 teachers’ movement in Oaxaca, Mexico, who are striking and taking occupation action against privatization and the destruction of public education pushed by US billionaires and Arnie Duncan, Obama’s secretary of Education.
