Anthony Cody, co-founder of the Network for Public Education, explains here why we must march in Washington to show our support for public schools.

These are our demands:

Full, equitable funding for all public schools

Safe, racially just schools and communities

Community leadership in public school policies

Professional, diverse educators for all students

Child-centered, culturally appropriate curriculum for all

No high-stakes standardized testing

I will be there. Stop and say hello and let’s take a selfie!
