Come to the next GEM meeting!
Feb. 2nd, 4:30 pm
CUNY Grad. Center, 34th at 5th Ave., room 5414
Bloomberg’s Cycle of Closing Schools:
The past 8 years of Mayoral Control have made Bloomberg’s plan for public schools clear: Close them down. Bloomberg/Klein’s education reforms are centered on business model tactics that pour public money into private hands and destroy democratic control of schools. As public schools close, privately run charter schools open in their place with boards accountable to nothing but a bottom line.
We Say NO! To Bloomberg’s ATTACK on OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS!
THE FIGHT DOES NOT END HERE!!
