Save Our Schools March & National Call to Action!

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!

  1. Hi. I’m the Electronic Media Coordinator for the Save Our Schools March. I’ve got big, big bundle of posts and messages to share with you, here–but we want to put that list on the SOS website, too, which is the first place newbie sharers and thinkers will go when looking for content on the March.

    In the meantime, here’s my contribution:

    • Thanks, Nancy!
      We want to support you folks however we can! We’ve asked to endorse you (on your site) but haven’t heard anything back yet. We’ll double post the posts you want us to and hopefully get a larger readership for the march. Thanks for letting us know and for sharing your blog!

  2. Here’s another compelling response to “why we are marching to DC” by Mary Tedrow.
    This is cross posted from my teacher blog, A Teacher’s Ruminations.

  3. We need to all be connected through a common cause of national support for public education and our educators and those who we serve in our schools- our young people.
