Public education holds out the dream that all students - no matter their background - will have the opportunity to learn, to develop themselves as people, and citizens.
Yet, today, public education is under unprecedented attack: our public schools are facing devastating budget cuts at the kindergarten through college levels, as teachers are laid off, classes sizes increased, and support services (tutors, aides, librarians, custodians) our children need to learn reduced and cut. At the same time, hedge fund managers and private enterprise see these cuts as opportunity to open a new market, to gain money and influence from our children.
Show your support for the American Dream of a vibrant, open-access, affordable public education for the 99% - and not the 1% - with this simple, direct message created by public school educators.
Any profits from the sale of this bumper sticker will go directly into fighting to Keep Education Public, against intense efforts by billionaires and privateers to turn our schools into their marketplace.
