Public Schools as Center of Rebellion

Why Public Schools Have Become the Epicenter of Rebellion
The revolution may not be televised, but it is happening in public schools. This is evident in the growth of student and teacher actions across the country, from walkouts to strikes. This shouldn’t be surprising to anyone who’s been paying attention. Public school communities – students, teachers, parents, and citizens – have seen their institutions targeted with deeper budget cuts, greater inequities in the system, harsher penalties for “underperforming” on arbitrary standards, and deadlier gun violence. Is it any wonder that these constituents are now standing up to say they’ve had enough?
