Join us for the first official NTU event of the school year.
New Teacher Underground, a working group of New York Collective of Radical Educators, is a social space for newer teachers to find support and dissect the realities of education in NYC. By connecting and educating ourselves, we strive to be more empowered in and out of the classroom. 
 
We will share stories inspired by the theme: “Seeing With Many Eyes/Practicing Empathy.”
On October 19, we will use a story-telling/restorative justice practice to reframe our experiences and plan actions that enhance our work as educators.

What is UNIDOS?

As a youth led coalition of critical thinkers, our purpose is to stand in defense of ethnic studies and all injustices within education. While defending ethnic studies is the backbone of our creation, we stand as a direct force to mobilize, empower and educate youth to take a stand against all injustices in our community and society as a whole. The Mexican-American Studies (MAS) program was outlawed in 2010 when Gov. Jan Brewer signed HB 2281. This bill bans any AZ class from encouraging “ethnic solidarity”, teaching to a specific group of people and promoting the “overthrow of the United States government.” Jan. 2012, Tucson’s largest K-12 school district complied with the law, liquidating the MAS program and banning its books.

Recently, things have only gotten worse: a federal court just upheld (March 2013) the anti-ethnic studies law, saying the AZ ban was constitutional (a ruling that threatens Chican@ Studies everywhere). We really want to inform national audiences and allies nationally, especially given the jump in support we’re seeing.  The Arizona “laboratory” is still kicking into highgear.
