What’s Up With the Privatization of Public Education?
Increasingly, venture capitalists and deep pocket corporate foundations are moving aggressively to remake our schools in their image. Join us for a discussion of the Stand for Children Ballot Initiative, charter schools, and ways to keep corporate influence out and keep community input – and quality – in our public schools.
Join us on Saturday June 9th 10am – 12pm for a community forum where we will discuss how proposals such as the Stand for Children ballot initiative and linking high stakes testing to evaluations are part of a larger strategic effort by corporations to make money from the last standing large public sector. These efforts are sweeping the nation and are oftentimes masked by appealing sounding non-profit organizations such as Stand for Children, Advance Illinois or the Foundation for Florida’s Future.
