ATASCADERO — On Monday, May 1, teachers in Atascadero will participate in a walk to Sunken Gardens for a rally to support education for all students at 3:15 p.m.
“We believe all children can learn, and the purpose of public education is to provide safe learning environments for all students,” said Atascadero District Teachers Association President Christine Williams. “Our walk-into will bring us all together to show we are united in advocating for every one of our students.” The ADTA is highlighting smaller class sizes for student achievement, schools as safe zones against bullying, student learning conditions, and advocating for the public education all students deserve.
For more information, contact ADTA President Christine Williams at 805-459-4073.
Atascadero teachers will be joining thousands of educators all around the state to march in support of education.
“This is a day of local resistance to threats to dismantle or privatize public education coming from the Trump administration, and for standing up for the right of all students to feel safe and respected at school, regardless of their immigration status,” said Eric Heins, president of the 325,000-member California Teachers Association. “It’s time to take a stand together for the future of our communities and to demand social justice for all students. Our schools must continue to be community centers, and not become profit centers.”
