Challenging the Attack on Public Education
Tuesday March 3, 2015 7pm
SUNY New Paltz, Coykendall Science Building Auditorium
While corporate education policy makers claim to be advocates of civil rights, their policies have instead undermined the civil and human rights of students, parents, educators and local communities.
The legacy of the civil rights movement to challenge injustice calls on people today to oppose high stakes testing, inequitable school funding, and the privatization of public education. Speakers will discuss this legacy and today’s movement to reclaim public education.
Speakers will include Dr.Yohuru Williams, Beth Dimino and Dr.Nicholas Tampio.
