There will be an open mic at the event, and all participants will be encouraged to voice their opposition to this new US war.

When: Thursday, October 4 @ 2pm

Where: 2506 Sutherland, Houston, TX 77027 (Harris County AFL-CIO)

Details: Your voice matters! For far too long, the voices of parents, educators and community members have been silenced.  Schools work best for kids when all education stakeholders can give  meaningful input. It’s time for HISD to listen! The school district’s topdown, test-driven approach to accountability is not improving teaching and learning. Partners Allied for Strong Public Schools (PASS) wants to give parents, educators and community members an opportunity to have a real say regarding the future of our neighborhood public schools. We need to hear from you! Please join us  for a Community Conversation that will cover: Testing and accountability, School funding, and School closures.
