March 25, 2010 — Around the country educators, parents, students and other supporters of public education are standing up and saying “no!” to budget cuts that threaten schools. From New York to California, NEA’s state affiliates have organized rallies to send a message to lawmakers: Don’t cut public education or communities suffer. At each of these rallies, some of the loudest messages come from the signs that protesters carry. We’ve compiled some of the best, from rallies in Arizona, California, Georgia, New York, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin. Have some from your state? Upload them on NEA’s Flickr photostream.
