Here is an opportunity for educational advocacy in these dark days for public education.

http://declarationofeducation.com/

A day to remind ourselves and our students that citizenship means asking questions, finding answers and standing up for what you believe in… and that education must mean that too.

Every classroom, every student, every school… draft a declaration of educational rights.

When it comes to education, what are the truths you hold self evident? Let’s make time to talk about these ideas within our learning communities.

Then, let’s document these truths, and continue the hard work of making a high quality public education accessible to all who want it.

If you are in the Oklahoma City area and are interested in participating locally in this event, please contact me. I’m going to contact OEA and other members of our Oklahoma Creativity Project’s Education committee to see about organizing a venue somewhere in the city.

Hat tip to Lucy Gray for sharing this.
