Chicago Educational Workers Industrial Network presents: Granito de Arena- a documentary about the struggle of teachers in Mexico

A documentary about teacher struggles in Mexico that looks so much like what is happening in Chicago.
Presented by Chicago Educational Workers Industrial Network 


Discussion after movie with Anne Carlson parent of CPS kids & 4-6th grade Montessori teacher, and Lisa Angonese parent of CPS kids.

From the website/Desde el sito del web “For over 20 years, global economic forces have been dismantling public education in Mexico, but always in the constant shadow of popular resistance…

Granito de Arena is the story of that resistance – the story of hundreds of thousands of public schoolteachers whose grassroots, non-violent movement took Mexico by surprise,
and who have endured brutal repression in their 25-year struggle for social and economic justice in Mexico’s public schools.”
