Silence would not be a word used to describe me.
No empowered school board. No justice. No peace. This is what you eat for breakfast. Moldy bread thing. pic.twitter.com/SWwVouIkqr

Teachers and students shouldn’t be in these conditions.
Right now, all we have is our voice. You can add your voice by signing this petition. You can also pass on the importance of speaking up to your students.
Normally, I use things in my classroom for a while and tweak it before I share it. But, I’ve decided to share the page with the MLK, Jr. quote now before the whole product is complete. You can download it here. I’d like you to be able to begin a discussion about silence with your students. Maybe sharing some of the pictures of the school in Detroit will make them want to speak up, too.
Thank you, Retta from Rainbow City Learning for encourage us to speak up by hosting this linky. Thank you Tamara from Mrs. Russell’s Room for sharing the article that made me aware of what was happening.
