Parents Rally for Children, Supporting Teachers, Immediate Building Repairs and Conditions Conducive to Learning
Parents are the voice on behalf of their children. On TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH, 2016
Parents and families will convene at Detroit Parent Network and march to the Fisher Building (3011 W Grand Blvd, Detroit, MI 48202) to take action for all students. We will then travel to the state capital in Lansing where we will continue to rally for the rights of our children. We want:
Repairs made on unsafe buildings immediately
An executed plan to maintain healthy and clean buildings
Teachers supported to teach, fairly compensated, and provided with adequate supplies and resources
A safe and secure environment conducive to learning
Recently, Detroit Parent Network surveyed hundreds of parents on what their top concerns were regarding their children’s education. Results showed that Parents were most concerned around: Teachers who care about kids, teacher shortages, and effective teachers. Many also shared that they were concerned with school building conditions and effective school security. On this day, Parents will unite to take action for the rights of all students.
