Saying Yes To Public Schools!

Back in October we had a rally in support of  our public schools.  That included a series of speeches made during the rally.  You can watch those, along with one Dr. Peter Stiepleman before the rally here.

Dr. Michael Schooley outlined many of the positive benefits of our public schools in his PowerPoint which we invite you to view here.

On our rally message boards, attendees recorded these thoughts:
