The Movement of Rank and File Educators asserts that the workplace rights of educators are an essential element of public education. The well being of communities in which our children live, is as much a part of the mission as the work we do in schools. We must transform the narrative of the education reformers as they push harder than ever to privatize our entire educational system and destroy our union. Let’s Fight for the Schools NYC Students and Teachers Deserve!
