The BTU membership has endorsed a march in DC on July 30. Here’s what the organizers are saying:
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, embodyWhite House 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 us!
Depending on numbers and interest, the BTU will probably rent a bus to send some members to the rally. Our plans are flexible. For more information and to let us know of your potential interest, please email Garret Virchick here.
