May 1st: Submissions and Update

Hello, all! Thank you all for the wonderful submissions in April. May’s theme is marching — marching for public education. As you can note from the image above, the March For Public Education will take place on July 22, 2017, in Washington, D.C., with sister marches in various cities planned on that date as well.

The organizers of the march have asked me to organize a blog for the event. So to support the cause, I am asking for submissions to include both on this publication and on the March For Public Education Blog. Here are some ideas to get you thinking:
 1. Why you support public education.
2. Reasons for marching.
3. Problems with public education.
4. Your experiences in public education (student, teacher, administrator, parent perspectives).
5. Public education compared to charter or private school education.
6. Finishing this prompt: “Public education is…”

Besides writing, the march organizers are asking for more people to join the Facebook group by going to this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1101122606660880/ and also going to the March For Public Education website at http://marchforpubliced.org/. Please also follow the March For Publication medium publication at: https://medium.com/march-for-public-education.

I will accept submissions anytime, but I would love to gather most by May 15, 2017.

Also, please share the collective work far and wide. The more conversation that is generated, the more the conversation changes.

Yours in teacher activism,
