Here are the first photos I have from #NJEdMarch27, the statewide rally for public education, going on right now at the Statehouse in Trenton. I’ll be updating:
Newark is here, big-time – 5 buses of Newark students, parents and community members outraged at the insulting treatment of the city’s students, teachers and community of Gov. Christie’s appointed superintendent Cami Anderson, and her poorly-conceived ‘One Newark’ school plan. Included are a delegation from Newark Students Union, and their teachers and school board. Student teachers are there. Rutgers is there. Also from Newark, Councilman and mayoral candidate (and Central HS principal, on leave) Ras Baraka. South Jersey parents and teachers, Highland Park, Hunterdon, Camden, Trenton and more. Bonnie Watson Coleman is there, and so is Tom Giblin.
