  1. The second part should be said as: Abandon Race to the Top, STOP the “standardized”
    testing, giving money to Pearson, and STOP privatizing public schools.

    (STOP–in caps.–does not mean shouting, but emphasis placed on the word stop.)

  2. Come on. Maybe we can’t vote in Congress, but we can call the White House bout important issues like this. Why would you leave out DC?

    • The move to charters and private management are centerpieces, along with competitive grants like Race to the Top, of Arne Duncan’s Department of Education. For example, !00 Chicago public schools are being targeted for closing, to be replaced by charters and privately managed but tax-payer supported schools.

    • Charter schools are private schools that receive public money. They differ from traditional private schools in that they don’t charge tuition or shouldn’t. However, since they don’t have to abide by any rules at all the public schools do and don’t have a board that is accountable to taxpayers, they are NOT public schools.

      The only reason charters exist is because the privatizers discovered they were a way to get public support when vouchers failed.

  3. Thank you, Fred ! Keep spreading the word! —> It is Tuesday… I am wearing my Red for Public Ed and making my calls to the White House. It has been one week since we waited in those lines …. now it is time to wait on the line. Make the call today. Let our President know how you feel about all this standardized testing of our kids… let him know that we are not OK with replacing public schools with charters. Stop Race to the Top – call today: 202-456-1111
