Setting up School-Based Committees

Grassroots Education Movement (GEM) is a group of mostly educators that has been fighting against the charter take overs, school closings, high stakes testing, mayoral control and all other forms of the attack on and public education and the push to privatize.

Where: CUNY grad center. 34/35th on 5th ave. N, R, D, F, Q, B, W, V, 6, 2/3 trains. Room: 5414
When: 4:30 - 7

We are meeting next Tuesday to talk about next steps in the fight against charter take overs, school closings and to find concrete ways for all those concerned with education to get involved in this growing nation wide fight back. One important aspect of our work will be to build school based committees to involve educators and families in the process of educating ourselves, building a collective vision of what we are fighting for and developing a strong base of active citizens that will hold our government and corporate entities accountable for this unprecedented attack on our work, our students and their families.

If you think you might be interested in getting involved with this work, if you are curious about what it will take to win this fight, or if you just want to listen, please come on Tuesday.
