Join Chicago Organizers for a 1-Day Solidarity Hunger Strike
  Help Save Dyett High School on Tuesday, Aug. 25

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I am calling on you to join the Dyett Hunger Strikers on Tuesday, Aug. 25 with a 1-Day Solidarity Hunger Strike.

On Aug. 17, parents, teachers and community members began a hunger strike to save Dyett High School on the south side of Chicago. Dyett is the last open-enrollment public high school in Chicago's historic Bronzeville neighborhood, but in recent years Chicago Public Schools has made numerous attempts to close Dyett. Instead, the local community is fighting to transform Dyett into a sustainable community school called the Dyett Global Leadership and Green Technology Academy.

On July 16, the U.S. Senate passed the Every Child Achieves Act of 2015, a bill to reauthorize the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act, by a vote of 81 to 17. To help grassroots education organizers and advocates across the country understand what's at stake in the ESEA rewrite, we've put together the below analysis of the portions of the comprehensive Senate bill that relate specifically to the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools' key issue areas of sustainable community schools, charter school accountability, school discipline reform and high-stakes testing.
