We want to offer a huge congratulations to all the parents, students and teachers across the county who participated in the May 4 national walk-ins! At least 76 cities joined in for this round of walk-ins, more than doubling the number of participating cities from our February event.
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 May 4, 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.
The Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools is circulating the below letter to show support for the one-day teacher strike in Chicago on April 1.
Today I stand in solidarity with teachers, parents and students in Chicago as they strike to demand the needed revenue to adequately fund their schools.
Show your support for Chicago this Friday!
Wear red and tweet to #ShutDownChi and #FightForFunding.
Dear AROS Family,
This Friday, Chicago teachers, parents, students and community members will stand up to the continued assault on Chicago's working class people, neighborhoods and public schools. They are taking bold action in the fight for the schools all our children deserve and they need your support!
