Night School is back in session! Join us on March 21st when we talk about education.

The U.S. labor movement, at a historic low point, is being revived by the teachers’ strike wave that began in West Virginia. The strikers insist that their fight is not just for a better contract, but in defense of public education itself. This movement can be seen as the first steps of a counter-offensive to the decades-long, bipartisan project of privatizing public education, led by billionaire philanthropists and neoliberal think tanks. Join Philly DSA as we examine the politics of the education reform movement, the role of education in a capitalist economy, and the (real and imagined) crisis of public education in the United States.

The Philly DSA Night School is intended as a forum for discussing thinkers, "-isms," and current trends in socialist politics. All meetings are free and open to the public, and are designed for all people regardless of previous experience. New members are always welcome.
