Arts Organizing Lifts Oakland Teachers Strike

"The Power of Youth. The Power of Educators. The Power of Labor. The Power of Community. The Power of The Art Build."
—Keith Brown, President, Oakland Education Association

Artists on the power of art - and these are just a minuscule, narrow window on what is being eliminated from “education” by privatization and ‘teaching to the test’.
Art Quotes

Those who view education as does the ponzie-scheme-baby-of-the-pyramid-scheme-privatization-of education Secý of Ed Bertsy Devosdollars, see themselves absolutely awash in lucre for generations to come if they can suppress the REAL dynamics of education and eliminate the arts - to create hungry robots to wipe their ar$e$. The Sec’y herself sees absolutely nothing wrong with what she is doing - while her brother is a mercenary for the same delusional model of “life”. Absolutely stunning how inverted the institution has been forced to become.

Leapin learnin MOJO! TAKE BACK OUR SCHOOLS!

Think of any of the great thinkers and doers, and they had teachers who knowingly stepped in, through and around the institutional structure for the sake of the minds of human beings - NOT A BANK or business.
