The class/color divide in our urban public schools is propped up by an inequitable and racist high-stakes testing machine that ultimately provides for corporate profiteering through the privatization of public education and the gentrification of communities of color. United Opt Out National is partnering with Opt Out Philly to host a town hall to raise awareness about this take-over of our schools and our communities. We invite the greater Philadelphia and Camden communities to join us as we share information and discuss direct actions that can help build the “opt-out movement” in effort to reclaim our urban cores.

With ‘walk-ins,’ national teachers union spotlights LA charter fight

Walk-In Resources:





Teachers union sympathizers will rally at public school sites in more than two-dozen cities across the nation Wednesday morning — including at more than 170 Los Angeles Unified school sites — as part of a national demonstration of support for traditional public school districts.
Among those expected to be in attendance in Los Angeles: the president of nation's second-largest teachers union. And that she's in L.A. specifically is no accident.
Randi Weingarten, who heads the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), said she chose to attend a Los Angeles rally to demonstrate her concern with plans to drastically expand charter schools in the city.
Countering those plans, Weingarten said, is "amongst [her] highest priorities." She added AFT has been working "hand-in-glove" with its local union affiliate, United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), to organize opposition to a plan from the Broad Foundation that calls for enrolling 130,000 new students in charter schools by 2023.
The foundation's leaders say parents are hungry for more options, pointing to long waiting lists at Los Angeles charter schools. But L.A. Unified leaders have said the plan could throw the district into financial peril.
"Why wouldn't we do everything in our power to give parents a lot of alternatives, including the neighborhood public school?" Weingarten said. "Why create this false choice?"
"It's a zero-sum game for funding," she added, "because of the attempts to create more and more and more charters at the expense of fixing local public schools."
National organizers have dubbed Wednesday's rallies "walk-ins," since community members will have the chance to walk into school buildings before classes begin as a show of support. But UTLA leaders also say their concerns about charters will feature prominently during Wednesday's rallies.
Weingarten will attend a walk-in alongside L.A. Unified Schools Superintendent Michelle King at Hamilton High School, the West Los Angeles building where King was once principal.
Hamilton students prepared for the visit last week by crafting a giant yardstick quilt, featuring nearly 100 panels decorated to represent the school’s academic programs and clubs.
Ariel Davis, 16, is a junior at Hamilton High School in West Los Angeles. She says funding and support for the school's diverse array of academic and extracurricular programming 'is something that we need to protect.'

Ariel Davis, 16, a junior at Hamilton, said she has no problem with charter schools as an option for students seeking specialized attention or alternative curriculum. But Davis said she fears aggressive expansion of charters will harm her district school, which she says has served her well.
“This is something that we need to protect,” Davis said of her school. “If we don’t, it’s going to fall into ruin and it’s not going to be the same."
Charter school advocates have said that many L.A. Unified schools are already in rough shape. But on Tuesday, the California Charter Schools AssociationFeature: With ‘walk-ins,’ national teachers union spotlights LA charter fight | 89.3 KPCC:

Proposed charter school’s status being decided

Charter group to review district’s concerns

Elk Grove Mayor Gary Davis’ original plan to open a charter school in Elk Grove this late summer may be postponed.

He is collaborating with Tri-Valley Learning Corp. (TVLC), a Livermore-based nonprofit, to operate Golden State Charter School, a pre-K-8 school. They have managed charter schools in Livermore and Stockton for the past decade.

“This is purely about providing an alternative and another choice for Elk Grove families,” Davis said.

In addition to being Elk Grove’s mayor, he is the director for the California Charter School Association.


Tri-Valley’s leaders decided to withdraw their petition on Feb. 2 to address a 10-page review from Elk Grove Unified School District staff that heavily critiqued their school plan. The staff recommended to the school board to not accept the petition.

Tri-Valley’s withdrawal gave them 30 days to address the concerns and report back to Elk Grove. Their board will decide on their next move at their Feb. 17 meeting, Tri-Valley’s charter development director Lynn Lysko told the Citizen.

Davis said the petition’s withdrawal was a good move.

“(Elk Grove Unified) took a pretty hard stance against the petition,” he said. “Tri-Valley now has an opportunity to fix the petition and bring it back for consideration. At that point, the district should have all of their issues addressed.”

Elk Grove School Board President Bobbie Singh-Allen told the Citizen she found her district’s review of Golden State Charter School to be “eye-opening.” She said that as per district regulations, her district will not accept any more charter school petitions for the 2016-17 school year.

The Elk Grove school district staff reported 29 concerns when they reviewed the plans from Tri-Valley. They doubted the TVLC staff could successfully implement their education programs due to a lack of solid funding plans and inadequate means of serving all students.

Plans are to open the Golden State Charter School near Interstate 5 in the Laguna West area. The district staff discovered the school’s proposed site actually lies within the Sacramento City Unified School District’s jurisdiction.

Staff also reported that Tri-Valley would also need Elk Grove city approval to rezone the school site from a “general commercial” use to house Golden State Charter.
Other concerns focused on Tri-Valley’s budgeting, which is mainly based on bonds such as a $25.5 million bond they issued last year. The nonprofit was reportedly unable to provide audited financial statements for their 2014-15 school year.

District staff also noted that the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District raised concerns over Tri-Valley’s practice of charging tuition fees upwards of thousands of dollars a year to foreign students. Such a practice violates the state regulation that prohibits charter schools from charging tuition.

The Elk Grove district also questioned Golden State Charter School’s staff development practices, budget plan and projections, approaches to teaching students from different groups such as English language learners, and its plan to charge fees for after-school programs.

“Relying on ‘fee-based’ programs to provide before- and after-school programs will dissuade families without the means to participate in these programs from seeking to enroll their children at the school,” the Elk Grove district report stated.

Questions of how many local educators and parents were interested in joining Golden State Charter were also raised. The district staff reported that Tri-Valley claimed that 40 local people including educators expressed interest but the charter petition did not disclose their names, due to “professional reasons.”

Golden State Charter is the second charter school that Davis has tried to open in Elk Grove. He earlier led an effort to open the Grove Leadership Academy in 2013 but his staff withdrew their charter petition following a critical reaction from the Elk Grove district staff and teachers union.
