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.
