Theme: Public Education is a Civil Right.
We need to stand up for our public schools now more than ever! We demand the following because all of our children deserve a world-class public education!
• Fully fund public schools
• Keep a strong taxpayer voice in school governance
• Stop privatization of public education
• Hold voucher schools accountable
• Require quality physical infrastructure for all schools
Public school students, parents, teachers and other staff members from the Milwaukee metro area and state are encouraged to participate to demonstrate our pride in and support for our public schools. We are looking for student drum lines, school bands and other performers to march. School t-shirts, banners, and signs are welcome. Student-made art (signs, banners, etc) declaring pride and support for public schools are also welcome.
