11:00 AM -12:15 PM – Centennial Square
1:30 PM – 2:45 PM – Rally at the LegislatureLetter from sos-talk, the email list that originated in the Save Our School movement in 2002
We invite families to join us in our plans to march and rally at the Legislature on Monday – it will be the first Social Studies field trip of the year for our two sons. This is an excellent “first-hand” learning opportunity/teaching moment! In fact, we will join my parents and will represent three generations fighting for a quality public education system.
We originally grappled with the inconvenience, cost, time, etc. involved in making this trip, but concluded that after witnessing the steady erosion of services and opportunities for all students, and investing heavily personally in time and effort to fight for improved conditions and funding, if not now, when?
And, to all of you who are showing support for the teachers in myriad ways, thank you. I know the teachers on our school’s picket line are most appreciative and are bolstered by all of you!
