    Assault on Public Education

    in Politics

    Last week the majority in the state legislature, under the leadership of Gov. Sam Brownback passed a new controversial law providing "block grant" funding to our public schools. The agenda has many critics, and may force a constitutional crisis in the supreme court. Later this week from March 28 - 30 people will be walking from Johnson County (NE Kansas) to the Topeka statehouse to raise awareness and promote participation of the public.


    Information about this event is at Game on for Kansas Schools. Stay tuned to RFK for updates.


    Today we will broadcast a special program on the corporate attempt to take over and privatize our public schools with Charter Schools. The show will expose how the "reform" movement under Obama's "Race to the Top" is being used as a guise to bring about this privatization of our public schools. You'll learn how they're doing it, who's behind it and what you can do about it.


    The Assault on Public Education is produced in the studio of WWUH 91.3 FM at the University of Hartford and airs on the last Monday of every month from 12- 1:00 PM.. at WWUH 91.3 FM (www.wwuh.org)
