Eva Moskowitz and Families for Excellent Schools plan a mass rally in Néw York City on September 30 to promote their goal of increased privatization.

Familes for Excellent Schools is not an organization of poor families of NYC, but an organization of hedge fund managers and billionaires who support privatization.

“Success Academy, the city’s largest and most influential charter network, again plans to flood the rally with its teachers and thousands of students and parents. Success parents are typically asked to take part of the day off from work to participate in the rally. A spokeswoman for the network confirmed students will have a half-day on Sept. 30 in order to attend.”

Mark the date on your calendar if you are a parent or teacher of the city’s more than 1 million students who attend public schools. In accordance with law, public schools are not allowed to close for half-a-day for a political rally.
