On December 9th educators will join parents, students and community leaders across the country to demand direct involvement in decisions that impact public schools.
We are standing up for America’s students rather than market-driven reforms which don’t address inequity – from high stakes testing, crowded classrooms, school closures, and the corporate grab draining school budgets. The people who know our students best — parents, educators, community members, and students themselves — are fighting for public schools ALL our children deserve.
Let’s join together on December 9th to stand up for our schools and our solutions. Simply input your zip code to find local events in your area.
Karen Schow, a Boise, ID educator, said it well in a recent article on Education Votes:
I’ve been teaching for 15 years, always special education, and I love it as much today as I did when I started. Politicians are short-changing not just my special education students, but those across the state, and this is why I’m participating in the Day of Action.
