Every day I get fund-raising appeals from Democratic and progressive national organizations. They usually include a list of critical issues and ask me which one I care most about. They never include K-12 schooling, which is now being battered and assaulted by DeVos and the Red state governors.
Here is a list I got today from the DCCC (I think that’s the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee). Here is its list:
WHAT ISSUES MATTER THE MOST TO YOU? (CHECK ALL THAT APPLY)
Fully funding climate change research
A health care plan that takes the burden off families
Continued funding for Medicare and Social Security
Student loan forgiveness
Making tuition affordable for all
A $15 minimum wage
Protecting immigrants and immigration reform
Fully funding women’s health centers
Fighting economic inequality
Creating new jobs
Preserving President Obama’s Medicaid expansion
Gun violence prevention
Protecting voting rights
The form had a box for other. I wrote: STOP PRIVATIZATION OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
And made no contribution.
No money until they acknowledge the threat posed by charters and vouchers.
