In the past two years, we’ve accomplished a lot.
Dear JCPS members took back local control of our school board. We helped put JCPS board members in place who are the most receptive to stakeholder concerns, who have promised to hold district leadership accountable, and will strive to keep public schools public. We’ve exposed injustices and helped board members make more informed votes. And we are getting a new superintendent!
We are making a real difference! But we can’t do it without you. The privatization movement has lots of money and resources. True public education advocacy work is underfunded, because there is no profit to be made in doing the right thing. With charter schools on the horizon and Koch Operatives at every turn, we have to stay vigilant. Help us keep our work going by making a donation to our work. Every expense is paid for from volunteers’ pockets: copies, buttons, signage, handouts, social media and websites, refreshments, mileage and gas. You name it.
Isn’t public school accountability and transparency worth at least as much as you pay for your PTA membership?
