Education Action Committee

The Education Action Committee is a group of teachers and parents dedicated to fostering equity and advocating for progressive change in public education.


We oppose the corporate reform agenda, including trends like high-stakes testing, top-down standards-based reform, and the undermining of teacher tenure.


We believe it is imperative to address the profound inequality and segregation afflicting New York City schools.


Through community events, informational campaigns, and public advocacy, the EAC facilitates dialogue on these issues and encourages action for the public good within the PS 29 community and beyond.
