National Mobilization by Parents and Teachers July 30

Are you a supporter of Save Our Schools March and National Call to Action? Are you an AFT or NEA member? Pledge to help recruit your union local to ENDORSE our national mobilization, SPREAD THE WORD to its membership, SEND US A DONATION, and JOIN US AT THE MARCH in D.C. on July 30!

Add your name to the list of Save Our Schools March supporters who pledge to ask their NEA or AFT locals to be present when we call the roll at the July 30 march for public education next summer!

Are you a non-teaching public worker? We need your support too! Ask your union local to support the Save Our Schools March mobilization so we can speak in one united voice in July!

Get started now!

Go to our website to register your pledge. Direct your union local to our website at www.saveourschoolsmarch.org. Make sure your members have read our four demands below, and then recruit your union local to join our national mobilization. Our pledge drive runs from Monday, March 21 through Sunday, April 3. Pledge now so your name will count as we watch the numbers rise on our website!

Also, attend our webinar planned for April 3 with Dr. Stephen Krashen, renowned educator, author, and activist, when we will announce our final pledge count!

Together we can stop the attacks on students, teachers, unions, and public education!

We need all of our union brothers and sisters to stand together with us to fight for the future of our profession and public education! It is time to say NO to using high-stakes tests to measure our work and our students' learning, NO to inequitable funding for our schools, NO to corporations and politicians setting policies and deciding what we will teach!

Tell your local union to stand with us and say YES to:
Equitable funding for all public school communities
An end to high-stakes testing used for student, teacher and school evaluation
Curriculum developed for and by local school communities
Teacher, family and community leadership in forming public education policies

Union Locals: Endorse now to stand proud!

Tell your union local to announce its endorsement by e-mailing us at saveourschoolsmarch@gmail.com so it can be proudly listed on the Union Roll Call on our website!

Pledge to recruit your union local to help us in the fight to take back public education!
