On Tuesday, December 12 we want to make a statement that can't be ignored. #WeChoose Equity, Not the Illusion of Choice! Another school year has started, too many children in this country are enduring a separate and unequal education. More school closings, turnarounds and corporate takeovers of public education loom. The #WeChoose Campaign is a declaration from hundreds of thousands of parents and students and cities across the United States with the clear, yet profound message – we reject and resist corporate education policies that are inflicted upon our children without our voice. We want the world to say WE CHOOSE EQUITY and offer REAL SOLUTIONS, and on December 12th commit to participate in the conversation – participate in the NATIONAL WATCH PARTY of the National Critical Conversation on Public Education hosted by Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry @ 10 AM EST – 12 PM EST LIVE and the rebroadcast at 7 PM EST. Dr. Harris-Perry is the Maya Angelou Presidential Chair at Wake Forest University, author and speaker, and hosted her own show on MSNBC. Panelists include: Derrick Johnson, NAACP National Director, Jitu Brown, National Director of the Journey for Justice Alliance and Judith Browne-Dianis, Director of the Advancement Project.
National Leaders have joined a national coalition comprising powerful education justice organizations launching a series of conversations across the country to focus attention the continued attempt to dismantle and corporatize America's public education system.
The failure of
previous administrations to respect the voices of all Americans has set the
tone for this perilous moment that we are in now. We reject a point of school
boards. We reject zero tolerance policy is that criminalize our children. We
reject mediocre corporate education interventions that are only excepted
because of the race of the children served. We choose equity. We choose
sanctuary cities for Muslims and all immigrants. We will organize local
coalitions and alliances to build the power to realize this vision.
For the world to take notice, we need to shout it loud, all at once.
Join the Journey for Justice Alliance, Network of Public Education, Badass Teacher’s Association, the Advancement Project and several of the most powerful education justice networks in helping to reach millions of people, on 1 day, with 1 message by signing up to this Thunderclap.
And on December 12 we will flood the world with our message, with our conversation! We Choose Equity and Justice, not discrimination and inequality in our education system.
