“City Parents Fight Back: Charters, ‘Race to the Top’ and the Struggle for a Quality Education in New York City”

A talk by Leonie Haimson

From suing the city Department of Education over its strategy of supporting charters over existing public schools operating in a building, to taking on its contract with Murdoch’s News Corp., Leonie Haimson and her group Class Size Matters are there, fighting for democratic schooling.  Ms. Haimson also is editor of the NYC Public School Parent blog and a columnist for the Huffington Post.  She is a founding member of Parents Across America, an organization dedicated to making the parent voice heard in the national debate over education reform.

@ 1:30 pm

“The Inconvenient Truth about Waiting for Superman”       

 A video & panel discussion co sponsored by the
Green Party and the Ethical Action Committee of BSEC

A compelling documentary produced, directed, filmed and edited by teachers, parents and social workers in the public school system.  We reject “Waiting for Superman” and the privatization of PUBLIC Education by hedge fund millionaires and corporate interests.  PUBLIC Education is not for sale!
