Coalition of Essential Schools (CES) at the Rally and March for Education and Justice, part of the Save our Schools March and National Call to Action that's happening this week. You can visit the SOS site for details on all of the events, which are taking place both in DC and nationwide from July 28-July 31.
During the SOS Rally and March on Saturday, I'll be at a CES table on the Ellipse. I'd love to see any Rhode Islanders/Providence Schools and Beyond readers, so please stop by and say hi! I'll have lots of info about CES's upcoming Fall Forum, our annual conference that will take place November 10-12 in Providence, and will generally be hanging out and enjoying the positive energy of thousands coming together to stand up for education that focuses on the long-term needs of young people rather than the short-term demands of high-stakes standardized testing.
