TODAY, Monday, December 9 has been designated as a NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION. Events are being held in cities across the country to promote and protect the core values of public education. While no “live” events are planned for Tennessee, Tennesseans can still take action online and continue to inform ourselves about issues affecting our schools. You can learn more about today’s national effort
and sign the petition to show your support
The petition will then give you an opportunity to email your elected officials about where you stand on supporting public education. This is an important, powerful step to share your voice. Your elected officials will only feel compelled to question changes in policy and vote against the corporate public school strategy if YOU, the voter, tell them what you want for public school children. By entering your address, the petition will auto-fill your representatives for email.
Another way you can act to spread the word about strengthening public education is to share this post on all YOUR social media (your Facebook page, twitter account, email) and encourage others to follow Standing Together for Strong Community Schools and learn more about education in Tennessee and across the nation! Spread the word!
