MISSION

March for Public Education: To promote public education through peaceful demonstration and action.

VISION

Public Schools will be safe, inclusive spaces for learning and critical thinking, where all children discover their passion(s) and role(s) as citizens. As members of March for Public Education, we aim to advance policy and recursively address issues of: equity, inclusion, accountability, a well-funded institution and the right to organize.

OUR PRINCIPLES

• Schools must fight for equity. All students should enter the classroom on equal footing. Special educators, social workers, school psychiatrists, behavioral specialists, occupational therapists, and countless others are critical to creating an equitable school culture. Striving toward this ideal is the only way to create a meritocratic environment that is fair for all students.

• Schools must strive to create a safe space for all. In this regard, schools have the recursive responsibility to combat racism, sexism, ableism, ethnocentrism, xenophobia, homophobia, and other prejudices.

• Public education empowers children to discover their desires, passions and potential. In turn, children become tenacious adults who are critical thinkers, involved citizens and lifelong learners. The arts, humanities, mathematics, sciences and physical education are equally vital in developing the whole child.

• Schools must be held accountable in the fight for equity. Accountability can include thoughtful standards and purposeful testing. These structures should strive to help schools provide a better education to students and should coincide with intentional professional development for teachers.

• A well-funded public education is a right of all children, regardless of their intersectional identities. For profit educational institutions and their fundamental motivation for capital are incongruous in helping children realize their full identity.

• Faculty and staff have the right and responsibility to organize. As members of the institution that is public education, stakeholders must challenge societal paradigms on behalf of students and the community.
