  1. Socialism and the Defense of Public Education

    Socialism and the Defense of Public Education

    The mounting struggles by US teachers, including the statewide strike by West Virginia Teachers in February 2018, poses basic questions of political strategy.

    What and who are teachers fighting against? What is the role of the Democratic Party? What is the character of the trade unions? How can teachers secure their basic rights, and how can the working class as a whole ensure the basic right to public education for everyone?

    Includes an on-the-spot report from Puerto Rico, where the Governor is using the devastation of Hurricane Maria to close public schools and privatize remaining ones.

  2. Flint: A Crime of Capitalism

    Flint: A Crime of Capitalism

    On April 25, 2014, the mayor of Flint, Michigan, Dayne Walling, pushed a button ending the city’s 50-year reliance on the Detroit water system and shifting instead to water from the heavily polluted Flint River. This act set in motion an environmental and health disaster with few precedents in American history. In addition to being poisoned, losing unborn babies, enduring an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease that killed at least 12 people, and having a generation of children who face lifelong neurological damage, the population as a whole has suffered immense trauma and stress, not to mention the collapse of their home values. This disaster, presided over by both Democratic and Republican politicians, contains enormous lessons. It was analyzed at every stage by the World Socialist Web Site. This pamphlet presents a selection from the record of the WSWS as the crisis unfolded. Learn More
