“Public education is the gateway and if we lose that, we’re damming a whole lot of people to a blighted future.” –Keron Blair
Educators, activists and community leaders rallied in state capitols, marched in the streets and took action in their communities to call out the danger of divesting from our communities to build walls and perpetuate fear.
Thousands of people are planning to take action on May 1st to show communities united against hate and bias and ready to stand up to ensure there are resources and opportunities for all students.
Educators are raising their voices to keep schools safe for all students and call out the Trump administration’s proposed corporate takeover of public schools.
“Public schools have been denigrated for so long and this was a clear opportunity to LOVE our public schools and announce that our kids matter. Our teachers and administrators matter. Our community matters.”
Demanding less testing, more teaching and increased investment in neighborhood public schools as opposed to charters, public education supporters will stage a third national “Walk-In” at more than 2,000 public schools.
