  • Promoting community schools
  • How parents, students, educators and community members can stand up against public school takeover attempts.
  • How we can work with others in our schools and neighborhoods to build a strong, unstoppable movement for our children’s right to quality public schools.

  1. Wonder what would happen if the children, families who support public schools went on strike until the politicians listened. Maybe a peaceful march. Maybe that should be done in the whole state of WI. I saw an ad on TV for a children’s hospital or? The children were the ones talking. It was great. Put the children out front. I think it would gain a lot of attention. I think it was after the California killings. They decided not to cancel a planned parade. The children were in front. It was awesome.
