3 WAYS YOU CAN SUPPORT CHARTER PUBLIC SCHOOLS RIGHT NOW

This month, we need your help to make one thing loud and clear: Don’t get played by CTA!

The California Teachers Association (CTA) has put forward an EXTREME set of bills against charter public schools that put kids first.  To ensure these bills become a reality, CTA and their allies are shamelessly relying on dishonest rhetoric and conspiracy theories.  

Help us fight back against these toxic tactics and an EXTREME legislative agenda that threatens the existence of quality charter public schools that are putting kids ahead of politics and bureaucracy.

Share any ALL of these posts that help illustrate the divisive rhetoric and lies put forward by CTA:

Why is @WeAreCTA shamelessly embracing online allies attacking the sincerity of thousands of charter public school students, parents, & educators? We hope legislators in Sacramento reject these toxic tactics! #DontGetPlayedByCTA

This one is important! Taken together, these bills would end the charter movement as we know it and result in the closure of hundreds of high-quality charter public schools throughout the state that are putting kids before bureaucracy.

Dismantle and divide. That's how our Board Chair Margaret Fortune rightfully summed up the @WeAreCTA latest collection of anti-charter bills during @CCSACon.
