DEMAND CORPORATIONS PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE THURSDAY, MAY 23, 12:00PM Hoboken Ferry, 1 Hudson Place Hoboken, NJ

 Quit the corporate welfare and fund our public schools! Protest Governor Christie’s giveaways to corporate ed giant Pearson!
High-stakes testing giant Pearson Education, Inc. was offered an $80 million payday from the state of New Jersey to relocate workers from Bergen County to Hoboken – even  though  they’re  already  getting   millions more from the state for their standardized testing plans. And what did Pearson do? They turned around and moved over 600 jobs to New York! Pearson is everything  that’s  wrong with the corporate education reform movement. While they get pay offs for lay-offs and rake in state dollars for their high-stakes testing programs, our public schools are being underfunded by $3.6 billion. On May 23, join us at the Hoboken Ferry as we protest Chris Christie’s  giveaways  to  Pearson  and  call  on  our  legislators   fight  for   New  Jersey’s  public schools.
