  • Picket in the Pines

    May 04th, 2014
    Location: Lake Placid
    Time: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

    Picket in the Pines! Put the PUBLIC back in public education

    WHEN:

    Sunday, May 4, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

    WHERE:

    Meet at the Comfort Inn
    2125 Saranac Ave
    Lake Placid, N.Y. 12946

    WHY:

    Education Reform Now, a union-bashing "reform" group run by Wall Street hedge fund managers, is hosting a retreat at Lake Placid May 4-6. The hedge-funders' deep-pocket Political Action Committee - Democrats for Education Reform - also will hobnob at the $1,000-a-head "Camp Philos."

    These groups promote non-union charter schools, overreliance on standardized tests and Common Core, student-data collection, vouchers, merit pay, test-based teacher evaluations, privatization, and removing teacher unions from almost any role in shaping curriculum or determining working conditions.

    ACT:

    Picket in the pines to put the "public" back in public education! For too long, so-called "reformers" have drowned out the voices of parents and teachers. These hedge-fund propagandists have contributed to New York State's Common Core mess, the (failed) In-Bloom push for student data, and the spread of corporate charters that undermine public schools serving all kids.

    Busses from NYSUT Regional Offices will be made available. Lunches for those on long bus trips will be provided.
