I like this movement already. They should included an extra. "An end to succumbing to helicopter parents of spoiled, lazy American children

Here i quote some of the manifesto
THEREFORE, WE DEMAND AN END TO THE FOLLOWING:


*ALL high stakes testing and punitive policies that label schools, punish students, and close public community schools

*ALL high stakes testing that ties teacher evaluations, pay, and job security to high stakes test results

*Corporate interventions in public education and education policy

*The use of public education funds to enact school “choice” measures influenced and supported by the corporate agenda

*Economically and racially segregated school communities

*“Model” legislation that provides special rules to charter schools that are forced upon public schools

*Corporate run for-profit charter schools that divert public funds away from public schools

*Mandates requiring teachers to use corporate approved, scripted programs that sublimate and negate authentic and meaningful learning experiences imparted by varied and rich curricula
Men's rights worldwide!
