I WANT TO ATTEND
I CANNOT ATTEND BUT I WANT TO DONATE
In the spring of 1982, a small group of committed activists came together to fight a ballot question that threatened to seriously undermine Massachusetts public schools. The coalition named itself Citizens for Public Schools and went on to wage a successful campaign to prevent public aid to private schools.
This year, like 30 years ago, a misnamed and ill-conceived ballot question--backed by a group claiming to speak for children--would undermine our public school educators and students. CPS has joined with others to fight this ballot question, just as we fought and won in 1982.
To honor and continue this important work, we need a party! On Thursday, June 14, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, a celebratory event in honor of our 30th Anniversary will be held at the home of Deborah Goldberg and Michael Winter, 37 Hyslop Road, Brookline.
Our Honorees this year: Rep. Byron Rushing, who led the fight against Public Aid to Private Schools in the Legislature; Ruth Kaplan, member of the Board of Education and founder of the Alliance for the Education of the Whole Child; and Gloucester public school parents working to protect funding and fight privatization of their schools.
We hope you will consider being a sponsor of this important event, with a tax-deductible gift of $1,000, $500, $250 or $100. If you want to be listed on the invitation or to send a greeting in the program book, please let us know by contacting CPS Executive Director Marilyn Segal at 617-227-3000, firstname.lastname@example.org or CPS, 18 Tremont Street, Boston, MA. 02108.
