NEA Endorses ‘Save Our Schools’ March

By Stephen Sawchuk — July 02, 2011 1 min read

The delegation just passed New Business Item B, which encourages all NEA members to participate in the “Save Our Schools” grassroots rally taking place in Washington, D.C., on July 30.

As my colleague Erik Robelen wrote about earlier, the rally’s organizers generally criticize things like standardized testing, teacher accountability, school “privatization,” and what they deem the “corporate reform” movement. It will include speakers like historian-cum-advocate Diane Ravitch, celebrities, and other officials.
