Recap: National Walk-Ins for the Schools All Our Children Deserve

Walk-In_Milwaukee_Cooper-300x169Recap: National Walk-Ins for the Schools All Our Children Deserve

To the thousands of parents, students and teachers who joined the national walk-ins…

Last October at the Advancing Racial Justice in 2015 conference in New Orleans, The Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools announced the launch of a national campaign to win the schools all children deserve.

After months of planning and building, February 17 marked the first big action in that effort. It was quite the time!

40,000 people participated in walk-ins on and around Feb. 17 at 838 schools in over 30 cities. We want to say a huge thank you to every student, parent, educator and community member who turned out! 

Together we demanded high quality, well-funded public schools, a stop to the state takeovers of school districts, an end to over-testing, accountability for the charter school industry, and racial justice and restorative justice in every school. We sent a powerful message to the enemies of public education, unified our base, and pointed a way forward!
