Philanthropy Against Teachers


Wyckoff Auditorium, Seattle University (map) Capitol Hill
Sun., May 21, 7:30-9:30 p.m. 2017

Prominent local Jesse Hagopian (Garfield High School teacher and education activist), professor of film and media at UC Irvine Catherine Liu, and author Wayne Au will expound upon what they see as the pernicious influence of philanthropists on education: "Whether they’re attacking teacher unions, peddling high-stakes testing, funding ballot initiatives for Charter schools, pushing to allow state-funded campus research to seed tech start-ups, or donating professorships in Ayn Rand Studies to cash-strapped universities, there’s one thing rich American philanthropists agree on: education should be run like a business."
