AFT Against Privatization in El Paso

October 9, 2018 - por

Texas: The El Paso American Federation of Teachers has come out strongly against the privatization of the El Paso Independent School District and against crony contracting. “Please understand there is an extensive E-Mail trail in possession of EP AFT spanning almost five years documenting his secret efforts to privatize EPISD and its schools with KIPP, IDEA, DSST, The Texas District Charter Alliance, the School Empowerment Network, the Gates Foundation, Tom Vander Ark, Michael Feinberg, the System of Great Schools, Scott Himelstein, Ms. Fenenbock and others. Please understand that as Mr. Cabrera was in heavy negotiations with KIPP to contract out EPISD Schools, he was looking myself, Louis Malfaro, Texas AFT President, and Randi Weingarten, AFT President in the eye denying he was going to do that.”
