As America Goes Back to School

August 28, 2017

Here’s to all the public school patriots who will welcome, love and teach all kids this fall. Our democracy is counting on you to restore their hope and faith in our founding principles and shared values after a summer of harsh lessons on the enduring power of hate. Our world is counting on you to continue America’s great gift of educating all children well regardless of race, creed, class, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, immigration or documentation status, or knowledge of English. Let the grand experiment in free public schooling for all continue, recognizing that only an educated citizenry is truly free. Welcome back to school, patriots!
