The PACT IS UP AND RUNNING

We have gone into action here in Alachua County. We are not happy about the CSUSA proposal to open a 1100 student school in Gainesville. So, several of us formed a political action group called PACT. It’s spreading the word about for-profit charter school chains. We just don’t want a link in that chain.

You can help us. Go to our webpage: https://www.parentsagainstcorporatetakeovers.com . Like us on FaceBook. If people like the PACT, find it useful, and donate to help us do pamphlets, videos, newspaper ads and such, we will move out to other counties. We are excited about the PACT. We are asking people to sign our petition to oppose the CSUSA school. You can contact the school board and the legislative delegation.

We are non-partisan, but we will let legislators know when they fail to vote against for-profit charters. We think charters should fill a need in a county school district, not just come in to make money and take money away from other schools.

Help Us and help all of Florida’s communities to protect our schools.

Citizens for Strong Schools Appeal on Tuesday: Watch!

Southern Legal Counsel will be arguing for a high quality education for all children before the First District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee on July 18 at 9:00 am. Last year, in Citizens for Strong Schools v. Fla. State Board of Education, after a four-week trial, the trial court found many problems in Florida’s education system, but ruled against the plaintiffs. The court believed that he could not order a remedy without violating separation of powers. You can watch the argument live streamed at: ¬†http://www.1dca.org/ustream.html
