UOO & Houston AFT Civil Rights Summit

October 14, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - October 15, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

UOO_Houston_Civil_Rights_Summit_Flyer_pdfThe continued challenges of public education and the teaching profession have only been exacerbated by past and current policies and practices. Moreover, the gulf between civil rights organizations and education activists has not helped to provide workable solutions. UOO and HFT will bring together various civil rights organizations and activists groups to discuss the shifting landscape of public education and its impact on civil and human rights and civil society.

​ The focus will be on creating alliances, building solidarity, and promoting a unified stance around the following issues: standardized testing, digital instruction, student and parental rights, allocation of funding, teacher quality, and the corporatization of public education.  Ultimately, the goal is to see our consensus realized on the local, state and federal levels in terms of policies and practices.
