When public education is under attack?
What do we do?
Stand up fight back!
On March 4, students, teachers, parents and community members across New York State will come together for the People's March for Education Justice.
We'll start at Trump International Hotel 1 Central Park West and make our way to Governor Cuomo's offices at 633 3rd Ave!
As we continue o defend public education
from federal attacks by Donald Trump and etsy
DeVos, we arch to defend here in New York from Governor Andrew Cuomo. The public investment he proposes in his education budget this year is woefully inadequate and falls way short of being equitable. It will negatively impact our most vulnerable students from early child care to higher education all across the state. Black, brown, immigrant, refuge, low-income, LGBTQIA, English Language Learner, homeles students and students with disabilitie, are worthy of an investment that will meet their needs not deny them opportunities to be successful.
· We arch to emand that Gorno
Cuomo finally fully funds the $4.3 billion owed to public statewide as a result of the Campaign for Fiscal Equit including the $1.9 billion owed NY
· e march to Raise the Age and end the
riminalization of our yout, we should be able to provide social workers and other nurturing and committed support staff in schools for struggling youth
· We march to end the state's over-reliance on high stakes testing
· We arch to emand that NYS nvests on the front end i childcare and pre-K and nvests in truly making SUNY and CUNY free for all n the back end in order to ensure successful transition to adulthood.
We march because we need a Governor in NYS who is not afraid to make th super ric pa just 1% more by extending and expanding the millionaire's tax and closing corporate tax loopholes, which could bring billions to fund high quality education for all and so much more.
· We march because the rhetoric of
Governor Cuomo and Trump attacking public education s almost indiscernible as they both have
called public schools "a monopoly" and
ave both push school privatization through vouchers and privately-run charter schools.
e will be releasing more of our platform as we closer to the march. We only have until the end of March, when the budget is finalized to have an impact.
