    Featuring:  
    Speaker from the Grassroots Education Movement (GEM) and NYC public school teacher
    Danny Lucia, Columnist for SocialistWorker.org and PS 69Q parent
    & clips from the documentary "The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman" 
                From Bloomberg to Bill Gates to the Obama White House, we're told that the key to fixing education is getting rid of ineffective teachers.  Teacher's pensions and benefits are also being blamed for gaping budget deficits across the country.  Behind these attacks is a plan to privatize and corporatize public education through non-union, privately-run charter schools, school closings and a punitive high-stakes testing regime.  
                But teachers, along with parents and students, are the most reliable allies in the fight for decent public education for all - including  public control over education, smaller class sizes and an enriching curriculum.  Internationally, teachers find themselves at the forefront of a battle against austerity and an overall attack on working peoples' living standards.  Come to a forum to learn how public school teachers and families are fighting back against billionaire-backed education "reform", and how the fight to defend public education plays a leading role in the struggle for a better society.
     
    NO TEACHER LAY-OFFS! NO SCHOOL CLOSINGS!
