My True Love Gave to Me a National Day of Action

posted at 12:42 pm on December 9, 2013 by

Today is the union-sponsored National Day of Action, but you might be wondering what exactly that means. So I sifted through the list of events and categorized them for you:

11 press conferences

8 noisy rallies

7 groups a-gathering

6 town halls

5 marches on public buildings

4 “come togethers”

3 movie screenings

2 teach-ins

and a “customized Christmas carol that will target the racist destabilization of schools in communities of color, and address school closures, corporate profiteers, charter expansion and other key issues in the district.”

Yeah, I saw that the NEA was doing demonstrations today – something about the “promise of public education”. Public education might be more promising if the teachers were in the schools doing their jobs. Just sayin’.
