Syracuse House Party hosted by Susan Glisson and Barbara Humphrey

If you care about protecting and improving public education, please come out to meet and support Howie Hawkins!
July 23, 2014 at 5:30pm,  311 Wellesley Rd, Syracuse, NY 13207
Please spread the word and invite friends and neighbors!
Gov. Cuomo's policies are exacerbating the inequalities in our school system -- in fact, New York now has the most segregated schools in the nation. Rob Astorino, the Republican Party candidate for Governor, will further segregate our schools by resisting fair housing settlements, supporting even more cuts to the education budget, and trying to outdo Cuomo in his promotion of charter schools.

That's why we support Howie Hawkins and Brian Jones! They are committed to speaking up for fully-funded, quality public education. They are calling for New York to opt out of Race to the Top and the Common Core State Standards. They want to end the emphasis on testing in the curriculum and policies that are driving the school-to-prison pipeline.  They want to eliminate the state-mandated local tax cap, provide equitable funding for all of our schools, reduce class sizes across the state, support programs that promote desegregation in our schools, and allow schools to develop methods of assessment that are organic to the learning process. Howie Hawkins and Brian Jones are both union members and union activists. They support unions' role in preserving the democratic voice of educators, parents and students in our schools.
