Don't miss: March 4: Public Education Day of Action

March 4th will be a statewide Day of Action to reorder the state's priorities and save California's future. Adequate funding for ALL public education (from pre-K through university) is an important part of this.

Organizing the event: unions, community groups, teachers, staff and students from K-12, community colleges, the CSU and UCs. Plans are still underway but the idea is for folks to organize locally (on campuses, at school sites etc.) during the day and converge at the Civic Center in the late afternoon for a rally at 5PM.

Here is the plan for from Excelsior, Mission and other southeast area schools. Schools from other areas of San Francisco are invited and encouraged to join in or create your own march to meet up at Civic Center at 5pm.

3pm - Parents, educators & students from Excelsior, Mission and other southeast area schools meet at 24th and Mission.
3:15pm - March to State Building at Van Ness and McAllister.
4pm - Rally with UESF at the State Building (505 Van Ness), march to Civic Center.
5pm - Mass rally in the Civic Center with pre-K through college level students, parents, educators, families.

It would be very powerful if students, staff, teachers, and parents from individual schools participated in contingents with the names of their schools, the amounts slashed from their budgets and the students with signs that say things like "I am the future of this state," I want to go to UC-Berkeley," I Have Dreams," etc.

  1. This morning's rally at Commodore Sloat (we marched and stood on the corner of Junipero Serra/Ocean)wes inspiring - would be great if there were a way to share photos from all of the protests happening all across the District as so much publicity in the Chron and other venues is focused on Universities...
