DC Teachers Will Wear Black in Protest !
By definition a 'protest' means an expression or declaration of objection, disapproval, or dissent, often in opposition to something a person is powerless to prevent or avoid. On Friday, DC Teachers will be wearing black in protest to the back to school morning rally with Chancellor Michelle Rhee. As we have learned from the independent Hart research poll results , a majority of DC teachers disapprove of the Rhee/Parker tentative agreement . Many are concerned about swapping long earned job protections for hefty raises. In solidarity, talks of this small unorganized effort has spread from school to school. So rarely do we hear of DC teachers being civilly disobedient against our leaders. Join us if you dare. We'll be there, dressed in black. Posted By: Candi Peterson
