9/14: Rally to Defend Public Education (@JCCC)
On Friday morning, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos visited Kansas City Academy, a local private school known for its welcoming, inclusive education environment. A broad coalition of organizations (American Federation of Teachers Local 691, Heartland Alliance for Progress, Our Revolution KC, MORE2, Indivisible KC, and the Missouri Democratic Party Progressive Caucus) rallied in support of a strong, well-funded, and inclusive public education system. Brief speeches highlighted strengths in educational diversity around the Kansas City metro and offered alternatives to the abrupt and draconian policy changes proposed by Ms. DeVos. It was a privilege to welcome The Reverand Dr. Rodney E. Williams, President of the Kansas City, MO Chapter of the NAACP and Pastor of Swope Parkway United Christian Church, as our closing speaker.
