Here are three simple steps you can take to stop the privatization and destruction of our public schools:
Call your Senators now to oppose the nomination of Betsy DeVos. Tell them that Ms. DeVos is least qualified and most dangerous individual ever to be appointed US Secretary of Education.
Ms. DeVos never attended a public school, never sent her children to one, and never has served in any educational or governmental capacity. Her only qualification seems to be her wealth, which she has used to promote a radical agenda of privatization — and to oppose any government oversight to guard against corruption, self-dealing and poor quality schools.
Senator Gillibrand: (212) 688-6262 and/or (202) 224-4451
Senator Schumer: (212) 486-4430 and/or (202) 224-6542
Send them a letter; a handy pre-addressed letter you can use or edit is here or below. Letters sent via snail mail have far more impact than emails.
You can also schedule a visit to their district offices where they will be between now and the New Year; or drop the letter off yourself. Senator Gillibrand’s DC and district office addresses are at the bottom of her website here; and Senator Schumer’s DC and district offices here.
Network for Public Education has a toolkit with these and other suggestions.
Give to Class Size Matters so we can continue our fight for the right of all students to receive an equitable, well-funded public education – and the smaller classes they need and deserve.
