The Peace and Freedom Party presents

The Crisis in Public Education
and How to Solve It!

As teacher unions in Oakland (OEA) and Los Angeles (UTLA) are preparing major strikes this winter, a coalition of educators, parents, unions, community, and students are fighting for increased state funding for public schools, currently among the lowest in the nation. To discuss how we can build California public schools into an educational system that people deserve, we will be joined by Keith Brown, President of the Oakland Education Association (OEA); Michael Shane, Teacher (O.E.A. member), and member of Classroom Struggle; Bob Mandel, former exec-board member of the O.E.A. during the 1996 strike; Jack Gerson, O.E.A. Negotiating Team during the 1996 strike; and Steve Johnson, Member of Labor Rising Against Trump.

This is part of our on-going Socialist Forum Series on the first Saturday of every month. Doors open at 2 pm and the program will start promptly at 2:30 pm. The forum will end by 4:30 pm, but folks can stay and talk afterwards. The opinions expressed are those of the speakers and do not reflect official views of the Peace and Freedom Party.
