There will be a march and rally in Washington, D.C. on July 30 to support and reclaim control of public schools by educators, parents and concerned citizens. Labeled a Save Our Schools March and National Call to Action movement, the four day event will feature Jonathan Kozol and Diane Ravitch as keynote speakers. Similar events will be held across the nation. This grassroots movement is calling on the public to demand:
• Equitable funding for all public school communities.
• An end to high-stakes testing for student, teacher, and school evaluation.
• Curriculum developed for and by local school communities.
• Teacher and community leadership in forming public education policies.
