Purchase your tickets here.

Each year we give an award to the individuals who provide the real “Skinny” on NYC schools. Past recipients of the award include Diane Ravitch and Juan Gonzalez.  This year, our “Skinny” award will go to two brilliant teacher/bloggers: 

Arthur Goldstein, who writes the NYC Educator blog and is an ESL teacher

at Francis Lewis High School in Queens

Gary Rubinstein, who blogs at Teach for Us and is a math teacher

at Stuyvesant HS in lower Manhattan

 This dinner is always a highlight of the year, with delicious food, good wine, and great company.

This year, it is especially important to attend and/or contribute to our work.  As always, Class Size Matters relies on your donations to keep our organization going.  We have continued to advocate for smaller classes and an end to school overcrowding, as class sizes swell throughout the country.  We also have become leaders in the fight against high-stakes testing, privatization, and the violation of student privacy.

Nationally, we spearheaded the battle against the sharing of confidential student data with a corporation called inBloom Inc.  inBloom Inc. plans to put children’s personal information on a vulnerable data cloud, and share it with private vendors without parental notification or consent.

If you believe that class size matters, and that it is important to keep our public schools and children’s personal information out of the hands of private corporations, please make tax-deductible contribution now to Class Size Matters and/or purchase a seat at our fundraiser dinner June 18 by clicking here or here: .

Please forward to others who care and hope to see you there, Leonie
