When we organize, we win!
Across New York City parents, teachers and students are getting organized – from the bottom up – to take on mayoral control of schools and the drastic cuts to K-12 and higher ed programs that make it harder for kids to succeed and teachers/parents to support them towards that success.
We know that when we organize, we win. We did it when we kicked Cathie Black out of the chancellorship, and we’ll do it again when we send Mayor Bloomberg out of office with his failed policies in his greedy hands. This weekend, there are two important events happening towards that goal:
Coalition for Public Education 3rd Annual Convention
Community Service Society of NY – 105 E. 22nd Street, New York, New York
Envisioning Student Unionism in NYC
Ya-Ya Network: 224 W. 29th St, New York, New York 10001
Let’s come together and take on the corporate model of education, and proclaim that WE ARE STUDENTS/TEACHERS/PARENTS, NOT CUSTOMERS!
PS – Look out soon for the NYC Student Unionism Interest Survey, to come in the next week or two, surveying interest among HS and college students (and allies!) for a city-wide student federation!
