“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

Green Party and the Ethical Action Committee of BSEC
