Occupy the Department of Education – April 4-7

I have just learned that my family plans for Spring Break have changed from a trip to a jam-packed Disney World to a visit with family in Washington, DC! I understand if some of you reading this don’t understand why on earth I would be excited about this – opting out of sun and warmth for a DC spring? I am SO EXCITED! Not only will I have the chance to spend time with extended family, but I will now be able to attend quite a bit of the Occupy the Department of Education!!

I was there last year. I was forever changed. I found that there were people like me who felt it necessary to say out loud that Race to the Top, emphasis on high stakes testing to evaluate kids and teachers, and narrowed curriculum are WRONG! I cannot wait to be in that group of like minded folks again!

Wondering what all the fuss is about? Check out all the details here!
