Protest Michelle Rhee and the

Corporate Attack on Education

Paramount Theater

February 7th, Rally at 7pm, Event at 8

2025 Broadway, Oakland

Who is Michelle Rhee?

  • Former chancellor of Washington DC schools and anti-union crusader
  • Founder of StudentsFirst, a partner in privatizing education with people like Bill Gates and the Broad Foundation
  • Featured in the movie Waiting for Superman, where she denigrated public school teachers and promoted her corporate brand of “Rhee-Form”

Why Should We Protest?

  • This isn’t about just one person: it is about the right-wing movement that Rhee represents
  • Rhee personifies the pro-corporate agenda that puts test scores and private contracts before students’ needs
  • Rhee and her right-wing cohorts, like Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, are leading the national drive to bust education and other public sector unions

What Do We Want?

  • Fully funded public education
  • An end to school closures and the expansion of charters
  • Good contracts for all public sector workers

Join Bay Area Education Activists
