Organizing against Neoliberal Education

Students from Mexico, the US and Canada met in the 11th Trinational Conference in Defense of Public Education to organize against neoliberal influence on education that lead to privatization of schools, standardized testing emphasis, attacks on teachers’ unions, school closures, and budget cuts.[i] They advocated early childhood education for all children, social services in schools, free college funded by taxing the wealthy, and closer partnerships between teacher unions and student groups.
