Occupy the DOE

Believe it or not there are still teachers in our public schools who do not see the threat to their jobs and livelihood. I certainly put some blame on the uft leaders who are selling "we only have to wait for Bloomberg to leave" while ignoring the threat of the political machine Eva Moskowitz, who wants to be mayor" is building by using her charter schools - you know it was never about education.

The gang at Tweed can only be met head on by large numbers. They moved the Dec. 14 PEP meeting to Queens (see stories at gotham and Ed Notes) to help out Eva who can rent buses.

OCCUPY THE DOE!
The Fight for Quality Public Education for the 99%

Should we allow the 1% -Bloomberg, his puppets on the Panel for Educational Policy, the corporate privatizers and their charter schools - to control our public school system? 

The Panel for Educational Policy is UNDEMOCRATIC!
Mayoral Control IGNORES THE VOICES OF PARENTS, STUDENTS, and TEACHERS!
Charter schools funnel public funds into private hands and force unnecessary competition for resources between families from the same community. All children have the right to a quality education! 

Join us to craft a People's Agenda for our schools! 

Join OCCUPY THE DOE Every Sunday
The Atrium
60 Wall Street

2pm: OCCUPY THE PEP (Direct Action Working Group): Discuss how to make the Panel for Educational Policy a REAL democratic forum for parents, students, and teachers!

3pm: OCCUPY THE DOE General Meeting.

SAME STRUGGLE, SAME FIGHT 
TEACHERS, PARENTS, STUDENTS UNITE!

Occupy the DOE: We are concerned educators, parents and students who believe that Bloomberg and Walcott -- the 1% -- should NOT have the sole authority over NYC public schools but that the 99% can best decide HOW OUR SCHOOLS ARE RUN.

Cheers,
Norm Scott

  1. Hey Norm
    It seems to me that the leftist revolution is not going so well. How hard the life of a community organizer and revolutionary is!
    But continue on with your revolution if it makes you happy and the little robots don't keep you busy enough.
    Now, they're spending 22 billion a year trying to educate a lot of potential community college dropouts with a pathetic dumbed-down curriculum that you "revolutionaries" have created, and things are unbelievably worse. But I'm sure when the revolution succeeds, and you take over you'll do it much better.

  2. A whole bunch of students are very lucky you retired with your attitude.

  3. Obviously the "28 year retired nyc teacher" is a bitter person. Yes, it is good that this person did retire. I wondered, after reading that comment, how someone who is, or was an educator could be so uninformed as to not see the real deal. Then I read the comment again-get rid of your anger "28 year"-I do not always agree with Norm, but it is apparent that you have some type of dislike for him by the statement that you make regarding "little robots".

  4. Norm,

    You know you are doing a great job when it becomes tougher to tell who your enemies are.

    Unity?
    E4E?
    DOE Officials?
    NYPD?

    Who knows.

    The funniest part of the statement is that the revolutionaries have dumbed down the curriculum.
