Charters, Privatization & the Defense of Public Education
The growth of charter schools and privatization of public education in California and throughout the US is a cancer threatening students, teachers and staff at all public schools. This education/action conference will look at what charters are and how they are siphoning off billions dollars from public taxes for profiteers. It will also examine how religious tax-funded charter schools like the Gulen Magnolia chain and storefront “online schools” like Escondido Charter High are growing in California and throughout the country. We will hear from parents groups and teachers who are fighting against retaliation and discrimination. This is a life-and-death struggle to protect public education and we will learn about it and how to defend our schools.
SPEAKERS: Sharon Higgins, expert on Gulen Magnolia Charter Schools; Dr. Frank Adamson, Stanford Graduate School of Education; Carlos Taboada, Retired UTR teacher; Kristyn Jones, UTR Teacher; Debra McCaffrey, parent activist; Michael Dominguez, UTLA retired teacher; Eileen Brown, Stand With Ross Valley Schools; Steve Johnson, teacher Labor Rising; Robert Ovetz, adjunct professor, Todd Groves, former WCCSB member, Edwardo Martinez, Richmond City Council, Pastor Bryant Adkins, Open Door Methodist Church, Fatima Garcia, Labor Council For Latin American Advancement Sacramento, Al Rojas, Labor Council For Latin American Advancement Sacramento, Michael Hutchinson, Oakland Education Network
