Los Angeles is at the forefront of a nationwide battle over the future of education. On one side, charter school advocates — with their billionaire backers — want to privatize our education system. On the other, parents, unions, and community members want to defend and expand every student’s right to a quality public school. The last Los Angeles Unified School Board election was the most expensive in U.S. history because the billionaires understand the importance of this race: the winner will either tip the majority in favor of privatizing education or improving our public schools.
Now, with the resignation of charter-backed board member Ref Rodriguez, the upcoming special election can tip the scales back in favor of public schools. Enter Jackie Goldberg. For over thirty years, Goldberg has stood firmly on the side of working Angelenos as a community organizer, LA city councilwoman, and state assembly member, with unapologetic support of community schools. As socialists, we are proud to endorse her, and to start knocking on doors to get her elected!
We're proud to work with Eastside Padres Contra La Privatización to host a bilingual canvass this Saturday in City Terrace Park. We'll meet at 9:30 a.m. sharp, do a quick training, and then start talking to voters about defending our public schools!
