Urgent Action: No School Closures – Tax the Rich & Big Business! (Roosevelt High School)

May 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

No School Closures! Tax the Rich & Big Business! 

Seattle Public Schools Community Meeting

Tuesday, May 28

5:30pm (set up table), 6pm meeting starts

Roosevelt High School (1410 NE 66th St)



This month Seattle Public Schools announced plans to close 20 Elementary schools starting in the 2025 school year. In one of the richest cities in the US, home to billionaires and some of the most profitable corporations in the world, this is an unacceptable and an unconscionable attack on public education and our communities. Recently, the Seattle City Council gave Seattle Police a 23% raise and back pay from cuts made during the 2020 Black Lives Matter Uprising to the tune of over $100,000,000! If they can find money for the police – they can certainly raise money to help fund education! 

This is an urgent action – its no accident they are announcing the closures right before summer break – they hope to quietly close down our schools with little resistance.  Join us to call for taxing the rich and Big Business to fund education!  No school closures – instead smaller class sizes!  We’ll be handing out fliers and posters to parents and educators at the school district meetings throughout the community.  To stop these cuts, it’s imperative educators, parents, students, our unions and the broader community come together to resist these draconian cuts.
