We say no more billionaire and corporate takeover of our public schools!



Charter schools cherry pick students, falsify records, commit enrollment fraud, close down public schools in predominantly low income areas, destroy jobs, bust up unions, appoint private school boards unaccountable to the taxpayers, and segregate student populations based on income and race.



Separate but equal has no place!!



A recent report entitled “Fraud, Waste and Lies: Charter Schools Cheating Communities out of Millions of Dollars” cited hundreds of millions of public education dollars being wasted due to fraud and other abuses in the charter school sector. Read here: http://www.commondreams.org/news/2015/04/29/fraud-waste-and-lies-charter-schools-cheating-communities-out-millions-dollars



The charter school industry is a cancer on our public education system. The only solution is to repeal the charter school laws in California once and for all.



Come to the rally - defend our public schools against the attack by greedy profiteers.



Please show your support for placing a statewide ballot initiative to repeal charter school laws in California by signing petition here:
