Watch Party & Discussion: Public Funds, Public Schools
May 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join Save Our Schools Arizona in watching and discussing our partner Public Funds, Public Schools’s event “Public Education: Cornerstone of Democracy,” a webinar featuring Dr. Julie Fisher Mead.
Dr. Mead’s webinar will focus on the role of public education in the U.S. as the cornerstone of democracy, and the ways that private school vouchers pose a growing threat to this institution. The webinar will address questions such as: What are the values and principles that make public schools so essential to a strong democracy? How do external threats to public education impact those principles? How do we describe and defend those values when supporting our local schools? Dr. Mead will also discuss differences in legal protections in public schools and private school voucher programs, explaining how privatization opens the door to discrimination.
After the talk, engage in a discussion of how these issues play out in Arizona and what we can all do – together – to effect change and save our public schools.
