Join the October 6th National Walk-Ins!

AROS is proud to announce that dozens of cities are gearing up for a demonstration of support for their public schools and the fight for the Schools All Our Children Deserve. On October 6 parents, students and educators will gather outside of their schools before the bell to hold a rally and march. Then they will walk into their schools together in a show of solidarity.
 
This is the third national walk-in event organized by the Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools - and the movement is growing! Earlier this year, 33 cities participated in national walk-ins on February 17 & May 4th. (You can find a recap of that event with pictures and videos here.)

As public schools are increasingly threatened by a view of education that supports privatization, zero-tolerance discipline policies, less funding, and high-stakes standardized tests, AROS is fighting back with a broad vision of American public education that prioritizes racial justice, equity and well-resourced, world-class, public community schools.
