Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
On July 30th, 2011 an historic event occurred. Thousands of education activists, comprised of teachers, parents, students and families marched on the White House to collectively voice rising opposition to relentless and dehumanizing federal and state education policies associated with what is commonly referred to as education reform.

This dynamic day of action was organized by the Save Our Schools March and National Call to Action, which represents an emerging national grassroots movement. SOS is comprised of a coalition of people and organizations that are dedicated to restoring educator, parent, student, and community influence over education policy and practice.

A statement, in part, representing the ongoing demands and goals of the SOS coalition reads:

"We, a collection of people from all walks of life and every corner of this nation, embody a mixture of ideas and opinions regarding how we can improve educational opportunities for all children. We stand united by one belief - it's time for teachers and parents to organize and reclaim control of our schools.

As concerned citizens, we demand an end to the destructive policies and rhetoric that have eroded confidence in our public schools, demoralized teachers, and reduced the education of too many of our children to nothing more than test preparation.

This movement is the natural result of increasing dissatisfaction with failed and failing policies like No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top, which have substituted high-stakes testing, rewards, and punishments for genuine investment and support for public schools
