RESISTANCE MATTERS: A Two Hour War Report - The OPT OUT Movement RESISTS Federal Threats and the Detroit Teachers RESIST via Synder Flu

Please join Internet radio host Dr. James Avington Miller Jr. for a special two hour War Report that will convince you that resistance matters, resistance is not futile, and resistance is the highest expression of democracy.

HOUR ONE:

Joining Dr. Miller for the first hour will be NY parent/activist Jeanette Brunelle Deutermann from Long Island Opt Out, teacher/activist Ceresta Smith from United Opt Out, and Sandy Stenoff parent/activist and co-founder of The Opt Out Florida Network (formerly Opt Out Orlando). Recently the Federal Department of Education issued threats to the states with high opt out numbers. As a result, the states then issued threats to local public school districts. This show will focus on the reaction to those threats and how the Opt Out groups are responding. The Federal government is saying that our resistance is futile. We, the champions for our children, are saying NO WAY!

HOUR TWO:

Joining Dr. Miller for the second hour will be former Detroit Federation of Teachers president Steve Conn. Steve, who has been a force behind the Synder Flu strikes, will bring us up to date on the resistance in Detroit. Joining Dr. Miller and Steve will be teachers who are on the front line of the strikes.

Detroit is the epicenter of the public school desaster and the reistance is fierce. As Steve says of the resistance, "It's going to be bigger. We are planning, as a I said, it's got to build to a city-wide strike. We're going to plan action next week that Michigan will know for years to come."

So, please join the resistance and listen and call in to this week's show. RESISTANCE MATTERS!

The War Report on Public Education with Dr James Avington Miller Jr
Show Host: 
Dr. James Avington Miller Jr.

The format of THE WAR REPORT ON PUBLIC EDUCATION explores one of the most important events in our life time - the total takeover of our educational system by corporate interests. This show is about the 'corporate' war on public education and the rising public resistance movement to the war. Dr. James Avington Miller, Jr. invites guests from all over who join the rising public resistance movement against the corporate greed taking on our public school system. He is interested in growing a grass-roots movement here in the United States and in Europe against the 'corporate interests' that are limiting both teachers and students everywhere.

This October 2015 he is taking his show on the road as he embarks on a very special project. His long awaited project ‘The People’s Story' is an effort to reach out to those individuals whose voices are not being heard in educational arenas everywhere. He will be interviewing, filming and collecting stories from parents, teachers, students and community members in the rural and urban areas of the Eastern United States to include Maine, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Washington D.C. Many lives are being impacted and harmed by the ongoing corporate war on public education that exists today. The consequence of the rapid privatization of our schools is inhumane and devastating to our teachers, schools and most importantly, our children.

His primary mission is to create a documentary/television series for PBS and the Arts & Entertainment Channel that will expose the human cost of man’s inhumanity to man. The objective is to document people’s stories from each state and create a one hour TV Episode for that state evolving into a 30-35 part series. Dr. Miller expects to have the first TV show ready by next summer. This will propel the ‘corporate war on public education’ front and center as a local, state and national campaign issue. Determined to awaken the world on a national level by providing a series of programs that will lead to understanding the whole picture – he hopes to demand an end to the Corporate Elite and their destruction of public education.

Dr. Miller is seeking funding for ‘The People’s Story’ project from friends, family and the public to cover the expenses that this will entail. If you care about the future of education, please support this most important project and be part of history in the making. This has been and will continue to be Dr. Miller's dream to complete and certainly his life's legacy.
