THE BIG BUSINESS OF PUBLIC EDUCATION: How will we
reclaim public schools from privatization?

35th St.), Room C201 Photo I.D. is required to enter
Space is limited. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Millions of dollars are exchanged between New York
Cityï¿½s Department of Education and private
companies. How do these relationships impact our
classrooms? What can be done about the seemingly
inescapable trend of schools privatization?

Discussion to follow
This forum is the third in a series of events where
educators can relate their experiences in schools to
larger political trends. The 2007-2008 forums focus on
the impact of privatization and the corporate model on
classroom life in NYC public schools.
Teachers Unite provides leadership opportunities that
build ties between educators and community organizers,
and political education forums that build an informed
teacher constituency. Teachers Unite is an
organization for educators who act in solidarity with
the communities they serve.
