REMINDER: AFL-CIO Teach-in Concerning New Orleans School System
SUNO Thursday April 19, 7pm to 8:15pm

My name is Michael Menifee with the AFL-CIO Organizing Institute. I am writing to remind you about a very important teach-in that will be taking place this week on the campus of Southern University of New Orleans (SUNO) regarding the State of the education system in New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.
Right after the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans School System suffered a tremendous blow when the State fired thousands of certified teachers and other school employees. After more than a year, the State of Louisiana has taken responsibility for the chaotic school system that has been created and no one is being held accountable. Although many schools are re-opening there is still a shortage of classrooms, desk, and textbooks. There is also little input from concerned parents, qualified teachers and support professionals. The end result is that our children are not getting the quality education they deserve and need.
In order for the necessary improvements to take place, it is going to take involvement from the state, teachers, parents, and the community. In an effort to create more awareness in the community about what is happening in the school system since Katrina, we are having a teach-in on the campus of SUNO this Thursday, April 19 from 7:00pm-8: 15 pm. This will be an informative discussion with parents, teachers and students.
I have attached a flyer about the teach-in.

In Solidarity,
Michael Menifee,
Voice @ Work Organizer
AFL-CIO Organizing Institute
