Parent email - Oakland, NYC & Chicago arm-in-arm?
- From Perimeter Primate, parent in Oakland schools:
(Hi Norm, I wanted you to see this.)
Hey Betty, way to go!!!
I am scanning the horizon in NYC and Chicago and things seem to be approaching a fever pitch there, too.
Read Norm's two entries for today on Ed Notes Online
I left this comment on the Chicago piece:
"If Chicago public school activists organized a REALLY BIG protest in advance, and got the word out inviting their sympathizers from out-of-state to attend the protest on their behalf, I would definitely plan on going. I'd even try to drag my family along.
I think the Chicago organizers might get hundreds of extra people from all around the country.
Maybe such a rally could become our first national big stand. It's about time our side gets some national press.
I'm sick and tired of all this crap. I hate crowds but I'd be happy to put up with one to make this big point to the nation.
I hope you'll pass this idea along to anyone you know in Chicago. Maybe they can identify a date that has meaning (for instance, Tuesday, October 20, 2009 will be the 150th anniversary of John Dewey's birth).
Let's get the ball rolling!"
