PSAT for 2-15-11: Sign up for Parents Across America newsletter

I missed last week’s PSAT because I was in NYC at the fabulous Parents Across America kick-off, meeting so many amazing parents from all over the nation and planning new ways for parents to support our public schools: “our children, our schools, our voices” (the PAA motto)!

Signing upThis week for Public Schools Action Tuesday, do something simple: sign up for the Parents Across America newsletter. You’ll keep up with activities and issues around the country — we are in this together! Acting together across the US will make our support for public schools and our fight against bad school policies and practices even more powerful.

With the reauthorization of ESEA looming, we need to make a strong case for what really matters in education: well-supported public schools that are open to all children, provide a rich, relevant curriculum, and connect to the community and parents in ways that strengthen our society.
