Puerto Rico Under Attack by Hedge Fund Managers
BATs as we keep watching and standing in solidarity with the 12 parents in Chicago that are on hunger strike to save Dyett High School we must also expand our vision and keep in mind that this is not an issue that is happening to schools in the continental United States.
In Puerto Rico schools have been under attack as vulture hedge fund managers seek to tap into the educational budget. Parents have protested outside of their neighborhood school for 80 days!!
