“…If the public sector is destroyed, or the concept is so diminished that it’s meaningless, then there will be no public education to defend. That’s not to say we should ignore the specific importance of defending public education, but rather to emphasize that the attack is occurring in the context of an attack on the very premise of a public sector.”
— Mr. Bill Fletcher, “Organizing In Defense of the Public Sector – An interview with labor union activist and writer Bill Fletcher Jr.” published in the book “Teacher Unions and Social Justice – Organizing for the Schools Our Communities and Our Students Deserve” (pg. 34-41), https://rethinkingschools.org/
