iCOPE's Getting Out From Under - A Human Rights Alternative

iCOPE's Getting Out From Under - A Human Rights Alternative

Getting Out from Under offers a positive alternative vocabulary, discourse and vision to the current corporate take-over of New York City's public schools. The grassroots forces gathering to contest this take-over must move from the reactive, fragmented realm of protest into the positive, integrated realm of transformational power.

The human rights framework embodied in this work makes explicit the human and civic values that have been implicit in so much of the protest of the last decade under mayoral control of the school system. These values represent the best of American values just as surely as the corporate take-over that championed mayoral control has represented the worst.

Ten years have passed since the New York State legislature handed control of the nation's largest school system into the hands of one super-rich man. It was the aftermath of 9-11 when democratic values were undermined by the appeal of coercive power.

This project was conceived and developed in the hope of a transformational moment. With the advent of Occupy Wall Street, that moment and movement — we believe, has come.

We offer this project to those engaged in the growing struggle.

We welcome the critical conversations where ever it occurs.
