Come picket CBS Friday morning!

Save Our Schools is inviting you to picket in front of the CBS Broadcast Studio at 6:30 AM tomorrow (Friday).

Come picket CBS Friday morning!

On Tuesday, August 14 a Concert called TEACHERS ROCK, presented by Walmart & promoting the movie “Won’t Back Down” was held in LA: with appearances from Carrie Underwood, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Garner, Matthew Morrison, Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl, Usher, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and others. On Friday, August 17 the concert will be aired on CBS.

The movie itself, “Won’t Back Down,” will premiere September 28. This film already has sparked much controversy. Developed by the producers of "Waiting for Superman," it gives a fictional account of parent trigger laws, and continues to attack public school systems.
The concert also supports Teach for America –which seems to be doing all it can to undermine professional teachers. Lets speak up for good public schools with well prepared teachers who are treated as professionals.

Come to 524 W. 57th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues Friday, August 17, at 6:30 AM to picket outside CBS's Morning Show at the CBS Broadcast Studio, Bring signs, pamphlets, etc. We will have a flier to pass out.

If you can, let me know if you plan to come, but show up anyhow.
