On a personal level, I have always been for community support of public education. It is why my clients Paterson Education Fund, Statewide Education Organizing Committee and T.J.Best for Passaic County are huge education advocates, I really want to see great things happen for ALL our children’s education. We need more folks to go to board meetings, rally’s and events to advocate for their children. One such event is the Save our Schools march this Saturday, July 30th, 2011 at 12pm in Washington D.C.
If you can’t get on a bus to join us on the march for our children, you can follow people’s experience by going to twitter and doing a search for the hashtag #SOSmarch (or click on the provided link). People will post live updates and other followers will continue the conversation about saving our schools. It would be a great way to get to know other folks passionate about public education in New Jersey and the U.S. You can also search for #edchat, #bloggermarch, #edreform and you will find many folks posting about this particular march.
Check out my article about learning Twitterese to understand what hashtags are. *PLEASE NOTE: You can do a search and read the posts and access the articles shared without a Twitter account. However, you cannot engage in the conversation without a Twitter account. The conversation is on even as we speak so check it out!
