MORE's Jonathan Lessuck to Speak at Ethical Culture Sunday at 11 am
The privatization of education
On Sunday, April 28, the Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture will discuss how public polices have allowed businesses to profit from education.
Jonathan Lessuck, an E.L.L.I.S. Preparatory Academy science teacher and MORE caucus union member, will discuss how the “education reform” movement has led to businesses competing for contracts and to diminished control by local communities.
The Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE) Caucus of the United Federation of Teachers believes the dominant Unity caucus hasn’t sufficiently advocated for educators seeking to stop school closures, halt the expansion of charter schools and co-locations, decrease class sizes and to craft a more equitable evaluation system.
The Society will meet at 11 a.m. at 4450 Fieldston Road.
