What does it take to overcome arrogant responses and obstructions when all we want is justice for our public schools, students, teachers and retirees with their pensions.
Here is just one story and commentary of educational courage published in the Answer Sheet of the Washington Post. HERE.
Excerpt: Sam’s story also teaches us that we must stand together. While
this story focuses on one individual, there is no way that Sam would
have acted without the support of NYCoRE. Working with others
affirms the efforts of the individual and inspires collective activity.
Recently, current and retired teachers have organized themselves
into groups like the Caucus of Rank-and-File Educators (CORE) in
Chicago and Grassroots Education Movement (GEM) in New York
City to broaden the voice of educators in communities and to advocate
for social justice unionism. Working along with organizations
like NYCoRE, we all seek to reclaim democracy within the unions,
schools, and communities.
We are not alone.
WE MUST RECLAIM REFORM – one story at a time.
