About

The Alliance for Brookline Schools comprises Brookline PAX, the Brookline Parents Organization, the Brookline Educators Union, Brookline for Racial Justice and Equity, and Citizens for Public Schools.

These organizations have come together to make a positive change for our school committee and for our town. We believe that through transparent and collaborative government we can solve the issues we face in a way that benefits us all.

 

The Brookline Educators Union (BEU) is a democratic and civic organization of 1100 members that advocates for public education and is the collective voice of teachers, curriculum coordinators, vice principals, caseload specialists, paraprofessionals, and others in the public schools.

Brookline Pax:  “Think Globally, Act Locally” Since 1962, PAX has been Brookline’s progressive voice for peace, justice, civil rights and civil liberties.  We work for well-funded public schools that teach the whole child, respect for our dedicated public employees, and empowerment for our teachers, parents, students, and the community in our PUBLIC schools.

Brookline for Racial Justice and Equity (BRJE): Created in September 2016 by students, educators, and parents, BRJE seeks to identify and clarify issues of social and racial inequality in Brookline and to build a multi-racial coalition in order to dismantle structural racism and everyday prejudice.

Citizens for Public Schools (CPS) has advocated for public education in Massachusetts for 35 years. We fight for adequate and equitable resources in inclusive, democratically accountable schools, with a “whole child” education for every student.  We oppose privatization and testing overkill.
