My older daughter bought a button machine when she was in high school and had started a little business with a friend. A few years ago, I pulled it out of the closet and made this button when I was getting really agitated about what the Broad-regime was doing to Oakland’s public school system (also read here and especially here). I wanted to do more than just stand around quietly and watch the destruction.
I’ve been thinking about buttons again lately.
Perhaps as you relax over the Thanksgiving holidays, you’ll have a chance to play around and come up with some concise, clever phrases to help get our point across. If you do, please post them in the comments section below.
Here are a few ideas to start with:
Broad Out NOW!
Hit the Road, Eli Broad!
Vulture Edu-Philanthropists Out, NOW!
Say “NO!” to Privatizing Our Public Schools
Halt the Corporate Attack on Public Schools
Bill Gates Knows Jack Squat About Public Education
Force Out the Corporate Infestation of Public Education
Drive the Corporate Schemers Out of Public Education
Bill Gates Might Know Computers, But Knows Jack Squat About Public Education
Who knows, bumper stickers might not be far behind.
It's been a long dry spell, but more and more people are catching on and speaking out. The grassroots movement is growing stronger, and your help is needed to add to the momentum!
Thanks, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
