RSVP 5.17.13 NYCoRE Monthly Meeting – Parents and Teachers United, We’ll Never be Defeated!

Parents and Teachers United,
We’ll Never be Defeated!

At February’s general meeting, we heard from candidates from the Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE) on why we need to organize our chapters and take over leadership of the UFT. In March, we heard inspiring words about the power of united communities from Karen Lewis, the president of the Chicago Teachers Union. The political education piece from April’s Member Meeting focused on community organizations. This month educators will hear from parent organizations on how they can support their work and help NYC parent organizations build a fight against the ferocious attacks on public education.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for June, when our third Member Meeting will culminate with a focus on youth/youth-serving groups as part of our look at how our work connects to their efforts.

In addition to our political education piece, there will be more ways to engage in critical discussions around issues affecting education.

Check out the following breakout groups:

  • New Teacher Group
  • No Human Being is Illegal
  • NYCoRE Planbook Organizing
  • Working with Parent Groups

If you are interested in leading a break out-group, joining the member committee, or representing your organization, please e-mail Rosie Frascella at rosie@nycore.org.

Location:
NYU Pless Hall 3rd Floor Lounge

4.19.13 NYCoRE Monthly Meeting

Audience during 2013 Keynote

RSVP for NYCoRE’s General Meeting – Friday, April 19th

“Educators and Communities United”

At February’s general meeting, we heard from candidates from the Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE) on why we need to organize our chapters and take over leadership of the UFT.  Last month, we heard inspiring words about the power of united communities from Karen Lewis, the president of the Chicago Teachers Union, props to the NYCoRE conference planning committee.

We have been inspired by the events in Chicago ever since the Caucus of Rank and File Educators won leadership of the Chicago Teachers Union.  Even before winning leadership, CORE was partnering with key constituencies of public schools: parents, youth and community organizations. When CTU struck this September, they did so with the support of the majority of the public and parents.  This is the type of community, parent, and student relationships we need to build here in New York City in order to fight the ferocious attacks on public education.

For the final three meetings of this school year, we will connect with community organizations, parent groups, and youth groups to hear from them and to explore how their work connects to ours.  April’s political education piece is focused on community organizations. 

ElPuebloUnido2012Educators will hear from community organizations on how they can support their work and find avenues for educators to tap into and connect students to the resources offered by community organizations all over the city.

In addition to our political education piece, there will be more ways to engage in critical discussions around issues affecting education.
