Join the Coalition to Defend Public Education, the Rhode Island Badass Teachers Association, the Providence Student Union and others to protest against the destruction of our public schools! We are rallying to save and improve our public schools, to restore public respect for our teachers and humane treatment for our students, and to demand full funding for public education. We oppose high-stakes testing, the use of “student achievement data” in teacher evaluations, and the handing over of public tax dollars to the private operators of “Educational Management Organizations” (EMOs) and charter schools. Join us in this struggle to save America’s most democratic public institution!

We will start at Providence City Hall at 3pm with a speak-out, songs and poems; then march to the Rhode Island Department of Education; then march over to the Providence Place Mall, where we will conclude our rally. We encourage everyone to stick around for the Jobs With Justice Labor Day Action afterward.
