**Calling all parents, students, teachers, school aides, community
organizations, youth groups, and community members concerned about
creating public education in the interest of the 99%***
OCCUPY the Department of Education invites you to:
The People’s General Assembly
on Public Education
Date: Monday, November 7th
Time: 5 PM
Location: Steps of Tweed Hall, 52 Chambers St.
Please join us for the exercise of democracy, the raising of silenced
voices, outrage at the lack of public representation in decisions of
educational policy, the creation of a People’s Agenda for our schools
and creation of collective actions that can realize this agenda.
During the OCCUPY the Panel for Educational Policy (PEP), we invited
Chancellor Walcott to this forum. He declined our offer but we still
think he should hear our voices. Please encourage him to come along
with members of the City Council Education Committee in this exercise
of real democracy.
Finally, help us to spread the word! We want to include as many voices
as possible! Here are five things that you can do to help us grow and
get our voices heard!
1. Forward this email far and wide.
2. Like us on Facebook and share the event3. Print the attached flyer,
post it everywhere and hand it out before/afterschool!
4. Call people that would be interested and ask them to attend. The
more the merrier!
5. Send another invite to Chancellor Walcott
, the PEP, and your local
city councilmember to attend.
Brought to you by Occupy the Department of Education!
