StudentsFirst, Parent Revolution, and Democrats for Education Reform are hosting a screening of the film “Won’t Back Down” at the Democratic National Convention. It is not on the official program, so I hear.
UPDATE: This screening is not sponsored by the DNC. It is being shown independently by the sponsors mentioned above.
This is the film celebrating the parent trigger, the law started by the billionaire-funded Parent Revolution in California and since adopted by the far-rightwing group ALEC as model legislation to encourage parents to seize control of their public school and hand it over to a charter school operator.
Join Us for a Screening of Won’t Back Down at the DNC
You and your guests are cordially invited to a pre-screening of Won’t Back
Down at the Democratic National Convention sponsored by Democrats for

Mayor Kevin Johnson and others.
