The War Against Public Education is Escalating. Come to Our Conference and Fight Back

Published by

The war against public education is escalating. You know it. Privatizers are fomenting dissent, division, and discontent as a means by which to undermine community confidence in public schools. It is a shameless strategy serving as the sideshow for their main event–turning our publicly governed school system into a marketplace of charters, voucher schools, and online learning.

There are over a dozen charter and voucher bills in Virginia. Betsy DeVos is deviously working to bring vouchers to Michigan. And in Alabama, the most destructive voucher bill ever is moving in the Senate. That bill would destroy public education as we know it by giving all parents money and requiring them to shop for schooling.

Join hundreds of public school advocates from across the country at our 2022 conference in Philadelphia on April 30th-May 1st and learn how you can fight back.

Learn from a former privatization lobbyist about the endgame of the extreme right-wing leading the charge against public schools. Learn how states like Nebraska have been able to keep charter schools and vouchers out.

If you are one of the over 200 advocates who are already registered, make sure you get your discounted hotel room here.

Are you currently fighting school privatization bills in your state? If you are part of a grassroots group and would like our help, contact cburris@networkforpubliceducation.org. We can provide a toolkit and meet with groups of five or more advocates.

All of the work we do fighting for public schools requires resources. Send a Valentine to public education by making your tax-deductible donation to NPE today! If you make that donation before February 20, we will publish your name on our Hearts for Public Schools webpage.
