Emerging coalition to defend public education: The Grass Has to Have Roots

The coalition of ICE and NYCORE had a very successful conference this past Saturday. The energy and turnout were great. To keep the momentum up we are having a followup meeting to continue planning events and actions around the issues of testing/school closings/ATRs and Charter schools.

This is a great chance to get involved, there will be lots of new people and lots of new energy. We are connecting to parent and community groups and hoping to get lots of teachers involved in the struggle.

The grass has to have roots!
