Education for Profit: How the 1% is Privatizing
And cutting resources of our Public Education

The structure of our educational system is under attack from K-12 to the University. From tuition hikes to Charter Schools to the bullying of whistleblower teachers. Our current struggle at City College of San Francisco and the UC system will also be discussed.
Steve Zeltzer, producer of Workweek Radio on KPFA, founder of Laborfest, and a founding member of United Public Workers for Action will speak about the political forces behind privatization, the financial conflicts of interest, and the current cover-up of physical abuse of middle school students at MLK in San Francisco.
Professor George Wright, history instructor at Skyline College and 35 year veteran professor of the California State University System, will speak about the institutional attack on economic democracy as it pertains to our schools
