Let’s Keep Walmart out of Our Classrooms, OK?

Summer’s about gone, and kids and teachers are getting ready to head back to school.

Back-to-school isn’t the most fun time of year, but it is especially hard for teachers and students when there are billionaire families, like the Walmart-owning Waltons, gearing up to use their riches to attack public education and shift much-needed resources to for-profit corporate schools.

The Waltons have spent more than $1 billion on their corporate-style education scheme, which has opposed commonsense proposals like giving all kids access to free public pre-K education.

And that probably makes students, parents and teachers in the cities the Waltons are targeting with their big checks feel like this:

But it doesn’t have to be that way, because teachers and parents are fighting back against Walmart-style classrooms—and you can join them.

Sign the petition now to tell heirs to the Walmart fortune, the Walton family, to keep their hands off our schools.
