Kids Not Profits

Show more
Billionaires have their hands on almost everything. The mortgage on your house. The White House. And Wall Street. But there's one place Californians will never let the billionaires get their hands on...our, neighborhood public schools. But the billionaires see profits to be made. Last year, billionaires with no experience in our classrooms, spent 27 million trying to elect California politicians who support their agenda to divert taxpayer money from public schools to privately-run charter schools. Now, they’re spending even more to elect their candidates to local school boards so they can convert public schools into for-profit, corporate charter schools. These schools have no accountability to taxpayers and a track record of cherry-picking students and turning down kids with special needs. It’s why Californians are demanding more accountability, and equal access for all students to charter schools. Public education should be about kids not profits. So join Kids Not Profits in keeping these billionaires' hands off our elections and public education in California.
