Labor, Ideology, Privatization & the Global Struggle for Public Education and Public Services
There is a worldwide program to privatize and destroy public education union and public education itself. This panel will look at the ideological agenda of this privatization scheme and who is carrying it out both in the US and internationally, and how the commodification of education is bringing massive profits to the 1%. It will also look at what is required to stop this privatization onslaught on our schools and public services.

Speakers: Jack Gerson, former leader OEA; Kathleen Carroll, former attorney and whistleblower Commission on Teacher Credentialing; Sharon Higgins, researcher on education and privatization; Peter Byrne, journalist.
