July 28-31, 2011 in Washington, D.C. and around the country
We’re putting the Public back in public schools!
We, a collection of people from all walks of life and every corner of this nation, embody a mixture of ideas and opinions regarding how we can improve educational opportunities for all children. We stand united by one belief – it’s time for teachers and parents to organize and reclaim control of our schools.
As concerned citizens, we demand an end to the destructive policies and rhetoric that have eroded confidence in our public schools, demoralized teachers, and reduced the education of too many of our children to nothing more than test preparation.
A well-educated society is essential to the future of the United States of America. Our students must have access to a fully funded, world-class public education system, and it is our responsibility to hold our government accountable for providing the means to achieve it. Please join!
It’s time to show the “powers that be” what the people of America think of their support for education and how we should be teaching our children. Please blog and share your link here in a comment. We’ll once again compile them. Please join us and share YOUR voice to put the public back in public schools! Use the twitter hashtag #bloggermarch to share your Blog for the SOS March!
