Parents, Teachers, School Board Members Challenge NCLB in San Francisco 4/14

4/14 Saturday - 9:30am - San Francisco - Voice your concerns about NCLB!
As thousands of school board members [like me] from all over the country will be meeting in the Annual NSBA [National School Boards Association] conference, hundreds of parents, teachers and community folks [like me] will be picketing outside the Moscone Convention Center to bring attention to the disaster called - NCLB No Child Left Behind [aka No Child Left Untested].
Saturday, April 14th, 2007, 9:30am – 11am
Gather outside the Moscone Center in San Francisco (747 Howard St., SF, between 3rd and 4th ~ at the Lobby Entrance).
We will join teachers, parents, administrators, school board members and students from Fresno, Oakland, San Francisco and elsewhere who will be voicing their concerns over the harmful impact NCLB is having on education, our schools and our future.
Besides our local Teachers for Social Justice and SF Freedom School activists, other organizers include - EPATA - Parents Against Testing Abuse and the Eliminate NCLB Task Force and the Assessment Reform Network Central Valley. Info - email -
For more info on how to raise your voices against the harms of NCLB join the 29,000 others in protesting NCLB at the Educator Roundtable website.

I hope we can invite the school board members to take action writing their congressperson and senators to voice their opinion regarding NCLB soon before it gets reauthorized.

I am an outraged educator, parent and grandparent. I wish I could attend, but live in Colorado. I will be with you in spirit. Keep up the good fight!
