March: March for Education Justice

Standard

website_banner2

“Betsy “Amway” DeVos clearly demonstrated at her confirmation hearings that she is unqualified to be Education Secretary. While her approval by Republicans in the United States Senate is a national embarrassment and an insult to public school families, the bigger issue is the Republican/Trump plan to privatize public education in the United States through outsourcing, vouchers, and tax credits and to eliminate opposition and make private schools the profitable by breaking teacher unions. While all public schools do not functional well, problems are rooted in poverty and discrimination in American society, not schools and teachers. Privatization is a threat to a fundamental American institution that promotes democracy and citizenship while contributing to social mobility.

In response to Trump, Betsy, and the Republican Party’s push to privatize public education, students, teachers, parents, and community members across New York State will march on Saturday March 4 for education justice. Multiple marches are being organized by the Alliance for Quality Education (AQE).

 

AQE charges Donald Trump and DeVos with threatening to take billions of education from New York communities. They are also concerned because “Governor Cuomo has a history of woefully inadequate education investments” and they believe “his current proposal is his worst ever and would take cuts to the next level.”

 

The People’s March for Education Justice program includes:
• Full & Fair funding for all Public Schools from Pre-K – College
• End the School to Prison Pipeline: Solutions, not Suspensions
• Increase Access to Early Care and Learning Opportunities for Babies & Toddlers
• End the state’s over-reliance on high-stakes testing
• Protect Public Education: End of School Privatization
• Implement Culturally Responsive Curriculum
• Increase Supports for Students in Poverty
• Increase Supports for Immigrant Students & English Language Learners
• Protect the Educational Rights of Students with Disabilities
• Full & Fair funding for all Public Schools from Pre-K- College

 

According to the March call “The system of driving school funding based on zip codes and home values, perpetuates systemic racism through dramatic inequalities in educational opportunity. The racial inequality in school funding is exacerbated by the fact that New York State has the most segregated schools in the country. For over a decade we have yet to see a political will of urgency from New York State’s elected leaders to reverse the racial and economic inequality for our children.”

 

The issues are especially sharp in New York State where Governor Andrew Cuomo has essentially endorsed the Trump/DeVos educational agenda. According to the Network for Public Education, Cuomo branded public schools a “monopoly that he wants to “break” and introduced a bill to provide backdoor school vouchers in the form of tax credits. An analysis of Cuomo’s proposed state budget shows plans “to expand charters in NYC” by eliminating the current cap, give more taxpayer dollars to charter schools for rent, and force New York City schools to give more space in their own school buildings to charter schools.”

 

Currently marches are planned for Buffalo, the Hudson Valley, Long Island, New York City, Rochester, and the Capital Region.

 

Huffington blogger Arthur Camins offers a thoughtful discussion of political strategy for education activists in his latest post.

Black Lives Matter is a unique contribution that goes beyond extrajudicial killings of Black people by police and vigilantes. It goes beyond the narrow nationalism that can be prevalent within some Black communities, which merely call on Black people to love Black, live Black and buy Black, keeping straight cis Black men in the front of the movement while our sisters, queer and trans and disabled folk take up roles in the background or not at all. Black Lives Matter affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, Black-undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. It centers those that have been marginalized within Black liberation movements. It is a tactic to (re)build the Black liberation movement.

Black Lives Matter is a chapter-based national organization working for the validity of Black life. We are working to (re)build the Black liberation movement.

This is Not a Moment, but a Movement.

#BlackLivesMatter was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted for his crime, and dead 17-year old Trayvon was posthumously placed on trial for his own murder. Rooted in the experiences of Black people in this country who actively resist our dehumanization, #BlackLivesMatter is a call to action and a response to the virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our society.Black Lives Matter is a unique contribution that goes beyond extrajudicial killings of Black people by police and vigilantes.

What Does #BlackLivesMatter Mean?

When we say Black Lives Matter, we are broadening the conversation around state violence to include all of the ways in which Black people are intentionally left powerless at the hands of the state.  We are talking about the ways in which Black lives are deprived of our basic human rights and dignity.

#BlackLivesMatter is working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.  We affirm our contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression.  We have put our sweat equity and love for Black people into creating a political project–taking the hashtag off of social media and into the streets. The call for Black lives to matter is a rallying cry for ALL Black lives striving for liberation.

Black Lives Matter offers opportunities to learn, to act and to join the movement – for everybody – black folks, queer folks, straight folks, all folks. If you are not part of the black community Black Lives Matter provides excellent opportunities to learn how to be a good ally.
