#StopProfitizingSchools

Schools should be run for kids. Not for profit.

I stand with Jill Stein, parents, teachers and communities across the nation to resist the bipartisan drive to privatize public education.

THE DETAILS

Former slaves knew education was a human right, and forced authorities to establish some of the nation's first universal public schools.  The idea had powerful enemies then, and it still does. 

Today the foes of public education are Wall Street and the US Chamber of Commerce.  They're the hedge fund investors behind charter school chains, the testing companies, the venture philanthropy foundations and the politicians of both major parties. 

The current the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) reauthorization guarantees the profits of testing companies and locks into place the harsh and misguided curriculum "reforms" with no demonstrated value being inflicted at great cost on poor schools across the country. This bill will continue providing generous profits for the venture philanthropy consultants that devised these misguided policies in the first place.

The Green Party's Jill Stein is the only presidential candidate who opposes the privatization of public education, and who unequivocally rejects the current version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, which sets the stage for more high stakes testing, punishing, and privatizing of our public schools, and continued abuse of students, teachers, and low income communities.
