Public education has been under attack for the past decade by the tea party. It started with a push for charter schools, transitioned to slashing funding for education, and in the past two years has become an all-out war on curriculum content. Hear from a former school board president who ran, won, and served as a progressive in a municipality that also elected Donald Trump for President. We’ll divide this training into two parts: mobilizing to prevent attacks from the alt-right on our public education systems at the local level; and recruiting, supporting, and electing progressives who will make certain public education remains strong in America.
