the doing: parents against public funds

pvi rebels set up the parents against public funds in private schools facebook page, complete with introductory video from the president, di vest.  the facebook content particularly focused on the “school fate”, where high end baked goods will be sold at high end prices.  our tiny hoax is still available and we encourage you all to support this good work.  🙂

the submission:

what overwhelms you?

“the divide between the extremely wealthy and extreme poverty is only getting larger. Ways to harm each other, the planet, and every other living thing on it are growing alongside the advancement of technology and what seems like hopeless inequality. With so much unemployment, pitiful wages, resentment against those on welfare who are being seen as choosing welfare as a lifestyle (rather than living in abysmal poverty), and global corporations and governments clinging rmly to the old ways of exploitation as a business model in an attempt to retain their wealth and power it seems we will never be free a downward spiral. If we embrace a living wage for all we could uncover new ways for living kinder and care for the planet and each other. Anyone, or many of us, could create/invent new ways to move forward, of living better, if only we could all pursue our curiosity”

think time allocated: 60 mins

the rebel meetings were often rowdy, at times moving. there was vodka.  a consensus was reached.  the submissions were thunked.

winning idea

pvi rebels will create a Parents Against Public Funds in private schools (PAP)  facebook page complete with introductory video from the president, Di Vest.  PAP’s remit is to divest from public funding because they are not dole bludgers, and do not want to filth of public money on their hands. The facebook content will focus particularly on the “school fate”, where high end baked goods will be sold at high end prices. 

where does it need to take place?
