2020 LaborFest | July 1-30

Our public education system is under dire threat as over 1300 charter schools in, California siphon off billions of dollars from public funds to privateers.
As a result of Proposition 39 written by billionaire Reed Hastings who owns Netflix, rooms and other facilities are being grabbed for charter schools, and co-locations are helping to wreck public schools throughout the state. The massive strike wave last year and this year is an historic step forward, and these mass worker actions have engaged the community and all working people.

This educational conference will look at the history of charters, how they are destroying public education and what teachers are doing to fight back to defend our public school system.
