National Day of Action
The Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools planned a National Day of Action on Thursday, Jan 19, 2017. The NYSUT Board of Directors voted to participate in this day at their December meeting. According to the January issue of NYSUT United, “the union will use the event to advocate for fully funded community schools, limits for standardized testing, protections for undocumented students, ensuring access to affordable higher education and for living wages that lift working people out of poverty”. The Alliance to Reclaim our schools is also using this day to protest the appointment of Betsy DeVos as US Secretary of Education.
