Cities Across the Nation Ready to Walk In for Public Education on February 17th

Parents, students, educators, and community members: Please join us at a public school near you on Wednesday, February 17th at 7:00 a.m. to celebrate public education and to stand up for public schools that welcome and serve all children. Public education supporters in Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, Green Bay,  Boston, and dozens of other cities around the nation will be also be walking in the same day.

Public education supporters will gather in front of their schools before the day starts to chant, march and share information about how school takeovers hurt our students. We will also educate others about public community schools that we know are a better solution than handing schools over to private third party operators. Finally, attendees will walk in to the school collectively just before the start of the school day as a community.

RSVP to attend an already established event or sign up to host a walk in at a public school near you. Keep checking back because new locations are signing up daily.
Instructions to help set up and host an Action Network event page are here.

Facebook event page for the day of action can be found here.

  1. Put the children first. Maybe children should carry signs that say…I am the American Dream!!! My public school believes in me. My parents and public school teachers believe in me. Martin Luther King gave up his life for all. He believed the American Dream, which has always been a better education for our country’s children was for all, not the chosen few. When those politicians who say they know more about learning styles than a trained teacher go teach for one year in a MPS school, and teachers get to choose the school. Then maybe and it’s a big maybe I will listen to them. Before public schools education was for the rich. Our country’s best hope for the future is our children. They are watching, and we better stand up for all of them.

  2. Maybe you should send email to President Obama asking for his support for the American Dream for all our country’s children. Public Schools doors have always been open for all no matter what race, creed, tribe or learning style. Before public schools, education was for the rich, the chosen few. Our country’s best hope for the future is our children. They are watching, and we’d better stand up for all of them.
