June Jordan School for  Equity:

Classroom Teacher :  –  Deadline: August 1, 2015

*T4SJ believes that public schools are one of the best vehicles for social justice and to transform our world into a more equitable place.  On-going efforts to privatize, segregate and undermine access to public education through corporate reform models, including the proliferation of charter schools, is problematic and something we all must stand up to.  We will not allow charter schools or their corporate backers to participate in our events and activities. Our public spaces are too important to give up. If you are a community based charter that meets a need that is not fulfilled by our public schools we will consider your participation on a case by case manner. We will continue to welcome, engage and dialogue with educators in charter schools and welcome them to our events and within our organization.
In dialogue and solidarity, T4SJ
