“If we don’t get the quality education that we need to succeed,
then we are being set up to fail,”

– Karen Calderon, a Hamilton High student

Defend Public Education

We believe public education has the ability to open doors to academic excellence, to address the economic, racial and social inequities in our society and to empower young people to think critically, be collaborative and change the world around them.

We believe that all students deserve access to a fully-funded, high-quality public education.

We believe that all publicly funded schools should have similar standards of transparency and accountability, equity and access for all students.

We believe parents, students and the public should help shape and transform their neighborhood schools to be truly community schools, locally grown and built by the neighborhood they serve.

Congratulations to all the people-powered candidates who won their election!

Los Angeles voters chose a future prioritizing strong public schools in this election. UTLA educators led the way.

Another day where we are waking up to more horrific loss of life.

Our hearts go out to those grieving the shooting in VA. It is a tragedy that we are not safe from gun violence in our workplaces and communities.

We cannot tolerate this anymore. We need #GVP legislation now.

LAUSD should have consulted with the teachers’ union and parents about its “Acceleration Days” initiative from the start. Addressing learning loss requires consistent collaboration with students, parents and teachers. https://t.co/6HaoPAr2jJ
We need LAUSD to clean the air for our kids, address the climate crisis, and support good union jobs! Join us tomorrow afternoon to urge the LAUSD Board of Education to switch to an all electric school bus fleet by 2035.🚌⚡️ https://t.co/vt3EqaSVPA ReclaimLASchls photo
Lucy Garcia with Climate Reality Project says one way to combat climate anxiety is to talk about it in the classroom. When it’s ignored, "That's where the trauma is worsened." https://t.co/K9jo2oCHum
