Education Workers, Neighbors, Parents, Students and all concerned about the future of Public Education are invited to protest the Sale of the Milwaukee Public School building at 500 East Center Street to the Right Step Military Voucher School.
• Right Step is currently under investigation by the FBI for child abuse.
• Neighbors are concerned that the small building is not fit for a school. This type of cutting corners is typical of Voucher schools that put profit before Education.
• Right Step has proposed marching students through the Riverwest Neighborhood. We say NO to military style education.
• The sale of a public building to a private voucher school is an attack on Public Education and a part of the broader Takeover plan. The dismantling of public infrastructure like our Education system is an attack on working people.
Gather at the Parking Lot of Gordon Park at 3:00pm. We will march down Center Street and Rally in front of the MPS owned building at 500 East Center Street.
Defend Public Education * No Unaccountable Profit Driven Voucher Schools * No Military Style Education
Come join friends and neighbors with noise makers, banners, signs and flags to celebrate community, and defend public education.
When: October 1st at 3:00pm
Where: Gordon Park Pavilion (Map embedded below)
