Protest Chief School Privatizer Arne Duncan at Fremont HS Today!

March 22, 2011 at 4:00PM Protest Chief School Privatizer Arne Duncan at Fremont High School.

[R]ight wing reactionary DFER/DLC corporate elitist filth Arne Duncan was recently interviewed. Mocking the deaths, destruction, diaspora of people of color, gentrification, and widespread misery Hurricane Katrina caused, Duncan had this unconscionable thing to say about schools in relation to Katrina: "best thing that happened to the education system in New Orleans was Hurricane Katrina." — Robert D. Skeels Arne Duncan's neoliberal dismantling of public education is criminal Arne "Katrina Schadenfreude" Duncan returns to the scene of a crime his policies made possible today. The government representative of the Broad/Gates/Walton Triumvirate will be touting his discredited and disruptive turnaround policies here in Los Angeles.

Fremont High School
7676 South San Pedro Street
Los Angeles, CA 90003-2399

Two quotes from two different public education activists sum up why protesting Duncan at Fremont High School is so critical:

Last minute but very important. LAUSD is accelerating its use of Duncan-style "turnarounds" of struggling urban schools -- which amounts to firing the whole staff and forcing all to reapply, union contracts be damned. These "turnarounds" or "reconstitutions" are a proven disaster -- the worst weapons in a nasty arsenal of corporate school "reforms". Even a small but organized protest could be effective. I'm gonna try to go. Contact me if you can attend.

I'm reaching out to anybody who might be able to go. Arne Duncan's been a big proponent of school "turnarounds" and I just can't imagine he's coming to Fremont to announce that he's been wrong about shutting down community schools, and re-opening them or turning them over to charters.
