This Saturday, July 30, thousands of educators, parents and students will convene in Washington, DC for the first Save Our Schools March & National Call to Action rally. They will march to the White House to demonstrate a call for “continued action to reclaim schools as places of learning, joy and democracy.”
A smaller gathering is happening in Sacramento, California with a similar rally at the State Capitol.
A key proponent of SOS is former Oakland science schoolteacher Anthony Cody. In his critique of standardized testing, Cody speaks from his teaching experience, and gives reasons why he is going to march to the White House this Saturday.
