This seems to be an event for Californians, but I see no reason that the sentiment can't be expressed nationwide.
Wear pink on Friday to show your support for your local public schools.
From the website:
California's public schools, colleges and universities are facing more than $11 billion in state budget cuts. These cuts are going to impact an entire generation of kids and alter public education for years to come.
March 13 is the deadline for school districts to issue preliminary pink slips to California's teachers. Last year, more than 10,000 teachers got pink slips and nearly 5,000 lost their jobs. And this year could be much worse.
Please join us on Friday, March 13 and Stand Up for Schools.
