Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 9am downtown (Beaudry),
our school board will consider a special resolution to
LOWER CLASS SIZE
As parents ~ WE MUST SPEAK LOUDLY IN SUPPORT OF THIS CRITICAL IMPROVEMENT.
There has been some suggestion that this measure is little more than a self-serving trick of organized labor.
We must QUASH this mindset that ignores our children's needs.
KIDS NEED SMALLER CLASSES IN ORDER TO LEARN BETTER
...it's about their education.

Who We Are:
We are many. We are parents from across all of Los Angeles Unified's seven districts. We have children in LAUSD. We are children in LAUSD. We are concerned with and about children in LAUSD.
We are Students, Parents, Angelenos for Real Classroom Support: SPARCS
What We Stand For:
Strong, Truly Public Schools. In Los Angeles, we demand truly public schools accountable to the public, administered and run by individuals dedicated to educating every child.
Democracy Fortified Through Public Education. Every child in Los Angeles has a civil right to attend a good public school dedicated primarily to their education.
Dynamic, Responsive Public Education. Appropriate, effective evaluation of our public schools, with parents welcomed, respected and contributing to decisions regarding the school system at every level.
What We Stand Against:
Privatizing Public Schools. The educational system is a sacred public trust, part of the social contract. We have a moral responsibility to the social and educational welfare of all among us.
Mechanized Schooling. All learners are individuals; standardization of classes and tests eliminates the unique contribution of a professional teacher to education and learning.
Public School Control By Non-participants. Educators should drive educational public policy; family and society its social components. Political demogoguery has no place in our social contract to provide effective Public Schooling for all.
