What We All Can Learn from the 2018 Educator Walkouts.

Date: 

Monday, September 17, 2018 (All day)

Location: 

Harvard Law School

Sponsored by National Education Association (NEA) and Labor and Worklife Program.

"Last week, the Labor and Worklife Program at Harvard Law School hosted an event with the National Education Association on the teacher walkouts that spread through red states from January to May 2018.  We held this event to learn as much as possible about what motivated tens of thousands of teachers to stand up for themselves and their schools.  The most profound lesson I learned was the importance of telling stories of worker power in order to foster worker power."
Quote from Sharon Block's OnLabor.org blog, "From the Mines to the Classrooms to the Statehouse: #RedforEd Teacher Walkouts," written following the convening.
