Rally for Public Education

Rally for Public Education
Saturday May 20, 2017
Boston Common (Beacon St at Charles St)

Parents, educators, and students are uniting to demand:

  • Full funding for public education, Pre-K through college (what we fight for as part of our Healthy Schools Initiative & for our Teens Lead at Work peer leaders)
  • Debt-free public higher education
  • Less testing, more learning
  • Equitable access to quality education for all students

Last year, we won a landslide victory in Massachusetts against the forces of privatization, defeating a dangerous ballot initiative that would have drained hundreds of millions of dollars from our public schools.

Now, the struggle continues.

We must stand together to resist the plans and policies of Trump, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and Governor Charlie Baker.

It is time to demand the public schools and colleges our communities deserve.
 
By uniting our struggles, we can build a movement for racial and economic justice and fight more effectively for a just society and future.
 
RESIST, INVEST, ENVISION
