Education Forum with Brian Jones

Public education in New York is under attack during Cuomo's tenure as governor. New York schools are the most segregated schools in the country and they're woefully underfunded. Additionally, the Common Core based test-and-punish regime currently being pushed in schools can be used to hold students back, deny them diplomas, fire teachers, and close schools. Instead of the privatization schemes pushed by Cuomo and Republican candidate Rob Astorino, Howie Hawkins and Brian Jones are calling for fully funded, quality public education, qualitative assessments instead of the punitive high stakes testing model, and an end to the attack on teacher's unions. Come hear Brian Jones  talk on a panel with other Rochester area activists about what it's going to take to actually fight for the schools our communities and families deserve!
