L.A. Unified delays bids on schools

Support Parents and UTLA against LAUSD and corporate charter cash cowsThe dark forces of Green Dot's corporate reaction delayed but not denied: L.A. Unified delays bids on schools

The hostile take over of our communities' schools by massively funded EMOs and CMOs was put off until August. While it is difficult to understand why some LAUSD board members are so determined to hand our public schools to undemocratic private corporations, we need to mobilize for the battle ahead. The wealthy interests including the Waltons, Gates, and Broads expect a return on the millions of dollars they've invested in corporations like Green Dot.

Every community and social justice group in Los Angeles needs to step up and join the struggle protect our children for these unaccountable corporations and to keep a modicum of democracy in our communities. Tell LAUSD we want our children to learn social and community values, not corporate values. Tell Yolie Flores Aguilar selling our kids' futures to the highest bidder and lowest common denominator is NOT innovation.
