On January 19th, educators and parents across the country will engage in local action at public schools to advocate for the education all our students deserve. In October, more than 2,000 schools in 238 different communities took part in the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools (AROS) walk-ins.
October’s events focused on the over-reliance on standardized testing and the unchecked proliferation of charters that drain funding from public schools. On January 19th, AROS partners will be walking in to their neighborhood public schools to fight for Education Justice and Racial Justice, fighting against the school-to-prison pipeline, and ensuring that our most vulnerable students (such as LGBTQ and immigrant students) get the high-quality public education that ensures America’s future prosperity.
