March For Public Education
Overall Mission and Vision:
Public School will be safe, inclusive spaces for learning and critical thinking, where all children discover their passion(s) and role(s) as citizens. March For Public Education (M4PE) aims to advance policy and recursively address issues of: equity, inclusion, testing, school funding, and the right to organize.
We are teachers, counselors, social workers, school psychologists, professors, researchers, paraprofessionals, students, parents, and citizen-advocates who believe in high-quality public education for all children, regardless of their race/ethnicity, religion, gender (identity), sexuality, socioeconomic status, language of origin, immigration status, abilities, or their zip code.
What is Public Education?
Public schools are schools that receive federal funding towards their operation. This includes the traditional neighborhood public school as well as not-for-profit charter schools. As engaged citizens that support our democracy, we support all of our nation’s students in attaining a quality education. We, however, recognize that our current political climate endangers public education: its schools, students, teachers, and communities. The March For Public Education is to advocate for the quality and joy in all of our public schools.
