Mayor Bloomberg has gone too far. And we are fighting back!!!
Over the past year, at least 50 schools have participated in the many Fight Back Fridays that have occurred across the city. School communities around New York City have had enough of the failed policies of the NYCDOE that have resulted in the deterioration and destruction of our public schools. As educators and parents, we demand a role in helping to shape our students' schools and futures.
If you, your school, or your school community plan to participate in Fight Back Friday, let us know @ firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can include you on our list of participants/endorsers and interactive map as well as provide you with a Fight Back Friday Toolkit!The Toolkit will include literature and educational material, media information, stickers, and sample materials to assist in your school organizing efforts. Visit our Blog @www.fightbackfridays.blogspot.com, visit and post to our Facebook page @ fightbackfridays, and post and send in your school’s perspectives, testimonials, videos and pictures of Fight Back Actions.
****Fight Back Friday will culminate with a press conference on the steps of Tweed @ 4:30.If your group or a member of your school community (especially if you are a school facing closing or co-location) would like to speak, contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.Let’s stand up for public education together, and make our voices heard!****
