Jesse Turner, professor of literacy, is walking from Connecticut to Washington DC this summer to protest education malpractice that he says is demoralizing parents, teachers, and turning our children into human capital. Along the way, Dr. Turner will be joining in local solidarity events, and local advocates will walk with him each day. He hopes the walk will help amplify BUS — BadAss Teachers, United Opt Out, SOS March — voices and those of other supporters of public education. He invites parents, teachers, and others around the country — on his walking path or not — to share their educational experiences so he can bring those stories on his walk and to the Hill. (More details.)
“The Walking Man” begins his trek in early June and shares his concept, itinerary, and ways to get involved on the Education Town Hall. Track 4 here —
