Who We Are

We are a network of progressive public school employees, parents, students and allies who believe that public education should be democratic, well-funded, and community-supported. We are opposed to the privatization of public education that is occurring at a rampant rate in the United States today. We use a list serve and website to keep ourselves updated on current issues in public education. We meet with others in a safe space for discussion of topics such as contracts under question, the lack of democracy in decision making in the education system, budget cuts, increases in class size, furloughing and reductions in force. We are a resource space for people interested in bringing more unity and action to the struggle to save public education.
