This Spring Quebec students led by radical 
student union CLASSE launched the first successful challenge against the privatization of education. Despite a government law that outlawed 
their protests students and workers secured a government promise to 
repeal both the 75% fee hike and the law. Stateside, the Chicago 
Teacher’s Union went on strike and managed to win a victory for students and teachers against the attempts to restructure education for prof
it.  The struggles continue, but provide countless lessons for education justice activists in Boston.

Hear CLASSE leader Guillaume Legault and CTU teacher Becca Barnes speak
 about fighting back against privatization and winning free, quality 
education for all.
