Teachers and parents often ask me: What can I do? How can I stop the attacks on teachers, on their unions, on public schools?
Here is one way:
On August 14, there will be an event called “Teachers Rock” to promote a film that is anti-teacher, anti-union and anti-public schools.
Let the stars involved in “Teachers Rock” know that the film they are promoting is NOT pro-teacher. It is anti-public education.
It celebrates the failed parent trigger, the idea that parents should “seize control” of their public school and hand it over to a charter corporation.
It is funded by the same pro-privatization billionaire that produced “Waiting for Superman.”
Here is some helpful advice from blogger Jersey Jszzman about how to contact the stars.
