Rallies FOR public education - across NC - Aug 2013!

Care about education? Go out and rally for it!

There are 6 rallies set up in 6 cities. Wear red, especially red tshirts and/or hats. The closest to Raleigh is probably Greensboro, so I will probably go to that one on Aug 14, in case you'd like to carpool with me.

I've emailed the original email from Public Schools First to members across the state. If you email me at president at I can forward it to you.

The email says:
Join Public Schools First NC, Progress NC and the NCAE as we head across the state to rally in support of our public schools.

We need to set the record straight and hold lawmakers accountable for what they did to public education this year. The public needs the facts, not misleading talking points designed to side step the harmful cuts to public education.

They have set our public schools on a path to destruction. Let your fellow North Carolinians know the truth! Attend one of the events below and please wear red in solidarity with NC's amazing public school teachers!

Invite your friends, family, and neighbors!
