I am calling for your consideration: A protest against government public schools.
I think we get it now. We understand how to get things done. It’s important to change things and just talking about it doesn’t get it done.We’ve been SCHOOLED by the best. Now it’s time to really stand up for school reform.
We know a new way! We’ve been schooled by the best. The best have taught us that the only way to affect change in an institution that isn’t doing what we want done, is to simply not show up.
Now is the time to take a bold stand. Stand up for school reform by not showing up to school.
Skip School for school reform.
Unlike the day without women, we don’t even have to be all over the place with demands and conditions.
We really just one thing: Until funding can be distributed in such a way that it follows the student to the public/private/alternative school of their choice, students (with parental permission) should follow the example of women, teachers, and disgruntled tribes who are making their grievances known by not showing up.
We shall call this protest:
“A Semester Without Students.”
Think about it.
Hashtag it. Plan it. Schedule it and let the media know we aren’t going to try to work things out from the inside anymore. Demand change and skip school until things change. It’s the new way around that slow democracy thing.
Show the women and teachers how well we’ve learned.
