WHEN EDUCATION IS UNDER ATTACK, WHAT DO WE DO?
Protest of Michelle Rhee’s $50,000 appearance at Symphony Hall
WHEN: Wednesday, November 9th at 6:30pm until 8:00pm
WHERE: Symphony Hall, Boston (on the sidewalk outside)
Michelle Rhee, the Former Chancellor of D.C. Public Schools, will be honored in the Boston Speakers Series on November 9th as an “renowned expert authority” in education reform. The "public" WGBH radio station is funding this appearance, and Rhee is being paid $50,000 for one night.
WE THE PEOPLE ARE ENRAGED. Rhee is infamous for the despicable way she failed D.C. public schools as Chancellor, for the erasure gate cheating scandal (see http://www.rheefirst.com/), and for fully supporting the privatization of public schools through entities such as Corporate Charter Schools. She has also been scrutinized throughout her career for her habitual lying problem, radical anti-union and workers rights beliefs, and formally dismantling public democratic processes to streamline her own power.
PLEASE JOIN US IN THIS ACTION, because Rhee made HORRIBLE CRIPPLING DECISIONS (including firing teachers, closing schools, and cheating on tests) within her three years as Chancellor AND WAS FIRED as a result – and now she is being paid (with taxpayer money) more than many Americans make in a year to recommend the same crippling decisions for our nation’s Public Education.
