Rally for Alameda schools Thursday afternoon

[Ed. note: speakers at the rally include State Assembly Member Sandre Swanson and former 16th district State Assembly Member Wilma Chan.]

This coming Thursday at 3:30 p.m. there will be a rally on the steps of the Alameda Unified School District offices to keep the momentum going in support of public education. My understanding is that speeches/remarks will begin at 4 p.m. and speakers include the always-inspiring Brooke Briggance as well as reps from teacher and staff unions. District offices are at 2200 Central Avenue.

Come on out and be energized to, among other things, pass Measure H, the supplemental/emergency parcel tax that, as I hope you’ve heard already, will be on the June 3rd ballot.

Also, for your edification/amusement here’s a link to an Onion story about the cutting of the entire past tense from schools across the country.
