9.21.12: Welcome Back, Come to NYCoRE’s First Meeting of 2012-13

Welcome back to school educator-activists!

Join NYCoRE for its 1st Monthly Meeting of 2012-13!

This month’s political education piece:

The Chicago Teachers Strike:
Where are we now? Where do we go from here?

Chicago has been the focus of corporate school “reform,” but Chicago is now the epicenter of the push back against it. The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU), along with parent and community allies, is leading the fight, and they decided to strike on September 10th.

NYCoRE stands in solidarity with CTU, and has been supporting the network of Teacher Activist Groups’ campaign, Solidarity with Chicago Teachers

At our monthly meeting we hope to have NYCoRE members and folks on the ground in Chicago speaking with us about what it has been like thus far, what the current situation is, and where Chicago and those that stand with Chicago Teachers will go next.

Date: Friday, September 21, 2012

Where: Global Kids **Note, this is not our usual location**
