_ "The public health and economic emergencies resulting from the
Covid-19 pandemic have only made public education more vulnerable. It
is no exaggeration to say that the future of public education itself
is at stake." _

A group of more than 200 teachers, academics, and activists on Tuesday
published an open letter calling on presumptive 2020 Democratic
presidential nominee Joe Biden to commit to a bold education platform
that puts the needs of students first and breaks decisively from the
decades-long bipartisan record
[[link removed]] of
attacks on public schools.

"You have the power to fight for the public schools and colleges and
universities that our students deserve," reads the letter
[[link removed]],
which was signed by New York University professor Diane Ravitch,
Princeton University emeritus professor Cornel West, author and
activist Jonathan Kozol, and 212 others. (See the full letter and list
of signatories below.)

"Over the past decade, politicians on both sides of the aisle have
made devastating cuts to public education, while privatizing public
schools, scapegoating educators, and providing massive tax breaks to
corporations and the rich," the letter continues. "These attacks have
resulted in a national teacher shortage and reduced educational
opportunities for many of our students—especially students of color,
those from low-income households, LGBTQ students, and students with
disabilities."

The letter demands that Biden include in his platform a number of
policies that have long been at the center of progressives' education
agenda, including:

* Complete cancellation of all outstanding student loan debt and a
cap on student loan interest rates in the future;
* Tuition-free public colleges, universities, and trade schools;
* A moratorium on public funds for charter school expansion until
the completion of an audit "to determine the impact of charter growth
in each state";
* A ban on for-profit charter schools and for-profit colleges and
universities;
* Free and universal school meals; and
* A starting salary of no less than $60,000 per year for teachers
and expansion of collective bargaining rights.

The educators and activists also urged Biden to back an emergency
program to prevent cuts to public education during the coronavirus
pandemic, which has strained state and local budgets and placed
school funding on the chopping block
[[link removed]].
Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo sparked backlash
[[link removed]] earlier
month when he vowed to work with billionaires like Microsoft founder
Bill Gates to "reimagine" the state's education system after the
Covid-19 crisis subsides.

"The public health and economic emergencies resulting from the
Covid-19 pandemic have only made public education more vulnerable,"
the letter states. "It is no exaggeration to say that the future of
public education itself is at stake. To reverse this offensive against
public education, we call on you to pledge to appoint a Secretary of
Education publicly committed to reversing this failed
billionaire-backed 'education reform' agenda."

Ravitch, an education historian and opponent of school
privatization, wrote in a blog post
[[link removed]] Tuesday
that the purpose of the letter is to pressure Biden to "reject the
stale and failed policies of the past 20 years" in favor of a "fresh
vision for American education."

_Washington Post_ education reporter Valerie Strauss wrote
[[link removed]] Monday
that "public education advocates have had a difficult time in the past
few decades as both Republican and Democratic administrations have
pursued policies that they believe harm public schools."

"President George W. Bush ushered in the No Child Left Behind period,
signing the K-12 legislation into law in early 2002 and ushering in
the era of the high-stakes standardized test," wrote Strauss. "Then
came President Barack Obama, who public education advocates hoped
would stop the country’s obsession with standardized tests and
address inequity baked into the funding system. Instead his
administration heightened the importance of the test scores by pushing
states to evaluate teachers by them."

Strauss reported
[[link removed]] last
June that "by all appearances... Biden was an enthusiastic supporter
of Obama's agenda," which promoted the expansion of charter schools
[[link removed]].

Biden has since been critical of for-profit charter schools, saying
[[link removed]] last
May that they siphon money from public schools "which are already in
enough trouble." The education platform
[[link removed]] on Biden's campaign website does
not mention charter schools.

To address the crisis of student loan debt, Biden unveiled
[[link removed]] a
plan last month that would forgive "all undergraduate tuition-related
federal student debt from two- and four-year public colleges and
universities for debt-holders earning up to $125,000" per year—a
proposal that falls short of activists' demands and Sen. Bernie
Sanders' (I-Vt.) plan to cancel all
[[link removed]] outstanding
student loan debt.

Read the full letter from educators and activists:

_Dear Vice President Biden:_

_As the Democratic Party presumptive nominee, you have the power to
fight for the public schools and colleges and universities that our
students deserve. We are concerned educators, public education
advocates, union members, parents, and students, writing to request
that you demonstrate your commitment to that agenda._

_Over the past decade, politicians on both sides of the aisle have
made devastating cuts to public education, while privatizing public
schools, scapegoating educators, and providing massive tax breaks to
corporations and the rich. These attacks have resulted in a national
teacher shortage and reduced educational opportunities for many of our
students—especially students of color, those from low-income
households, LGBTQ students, and students with disabilities._

_The public health and economic emergencies resulting from the
Covid-19 pandemic have only made public education more vulnerable. It
is no exaggeration to say that the future of public education itself
is at stake._

_To reverse this offensive against public education, we call on you to
pledge to appoint a Secretary of Education publicly committed to
reversing this failed billionaire-backed "education reform" agenda and
we call on your campaign to immediately adopt the following policy
planks:_

_* Implement a Federal Emergency Education Program that would:_

_Provide direct federal aid to ensure that school districts and public
higher education institutions are able to prevent budget cuts and
maintain pre-crisis staffing levels._

_Empower educators to determine how best to utilize remote learning
education technology when it is deemed necessary for health and safety
reasons and how best to teach those students for whom remote learning
is not feasible or appropriate._

_Suspend all federal requirements relating to the use of high-stakes
testing for the duration of the emergency._

_* Triple Title I funding to ensure that at-risk schools get the
funding and resources they need and invest in broadband so that
students have access to critical resources._

_* Repeal high-stakes testing mandates that force educators to "teach
to the test."_

_* Address the school-to-prison pipeline by investing in public
schools and calling for the elimination of zero tolerance policies and
over-policing._

_* Ban for-profit charter schools and for-profit colleges and
universities._

_* Support the NAACP's moratorium on public funds for charter school
expansion until a national audit has been completed to determine the
impact of charter growth in each state._

_* Eliminate the $440 million annual federal subsidy for new charter
schools, which have a failure rate of 40 percent and currently
subsidizes billionaire-funded corporate charter schools._

_* Give teachers a much-deserved raise by setting a starting salary
for them at no less than $60,000 (pegged to the cost of living),
expanding collective bargaining rights and teacher tenure, and funding
out-of-pocket expenses for classroom materials._

_* Strengthen the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)
by ensuring that the federal government provides at least 50 percent
of the funding for special education._

_* Provide year-round, free universal school meals, increase funding
for Community Schools and after-school programs, and implement
universal child-centered pre-kindergarten for all children beginning
at the age of 3._

_* Guarantee tuition-free public colleges, universities, HBCUs,
Minority Serving Institutions, and trade-schools to all, not just
those who qualify through means-testing._

_* Cancel all student loan debt and place a cap on student loan
interest rates moving forward._
