Rally for Public Education at the NPE Action Conference in March
It is almost time for the NPE/NPE Action Conference and we need you there. If you have not registered already, please do so today here.
We need you at the conference to engage with leaders of the Red for Ed movement so that we can keep the momentum going in 2020. Thanks to Red for Ed, our nation is renewing its faith in our teachers. Our communities understand the importance of increased funding for our public schools. Teacher leaders stood up and their communities stood with them. Learn what they did to earn their communities’ support and trust.
Learn how the rise of charter schools, especially schools controlled by charter chains, have exploited the communities they were supposed to serve by robbing parents of voice and creating school churn for children–a poor substitute for the well-resourced community schools they deserve.
You will hear from the experts on topics including privatization, grassroots organizing, high-stakes testing, and community schools. And you will learn how you can fight programs like Teach for America that are funded by billionaires who prefer teacher churn to stable school faculties that make long-term commitments to the communities and schools they serve.
You can find the entire conference schedule here.
And of course we want you there to celebrate Diane’s new book, joining us for a special celebration on Saturday evening, open to all who attend the conference.
Don’t wait. Enrollment is limited and there are only a handful of discounted rooms left in the conference hotel.
Register today to join friends of public education from across the nation on March 28-29 for our sixth annual conference in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia.
