#ProtectOurSchools Rally

UFT members, parents, and supporters of public schools all around New York State took part in rallies, protests and  forums, created wonderful signs, reached out to the press and used social media to spread our love for public schools. These actions culminated in a rally at Governor Cuomo’s Manhattan office with thousands of people demanding that the Governor work with us, not against us.

MORE believes these actions should be the start, not the end, of a mass mobilization of educators and parents to have our voices heard. Too many decisions have been made without our input. This needs to change now!

Our due process tenure rights are under attack as is the very concept of being in a union. We must continue to build actions alongside parents, students, and the communities we serve to show our strength.

MORE was well represented at the Rally To Protect Our Schools on March 28 with Mindy Rosier, Jia Lee, and Patrick Walsh all featured as speakers.

BROCHURE 1BROCHURE 2

This Thursday, January 8th, there will be a Public Hearing on Success Academy in District 1 at P.S.20 Anna Silver School, located a 166 Essex Street in lower Manhattan. 

We need to let our voices be heard!

Join us in telling Success Academy CEOs and decision-makers that It is not acceptable for our public schools to be invaded by an entity that…

-does not educate “all” as they claim

-steals resources, and

-misinforms the media and the general public. 

If space is not found within a school, we, as tax payers. should not have to fund their rent and we certainly should not have to fund their renovations. 

This needs to stop, and we need you to be part of it! 

Here’s what you can do…

Please RSVP on this invite and sign up for public comment at 5:30 on Thursday night at the hearing.

Print out and hand out our pamphlet on The Truth About Charters.

Also, take a moment to sign and share this petition on there being no need for Success Academy in D1.

MORE will see you there!

See our fliers here- please print and distribute
