On October 6, 2016, over 2,000 public schools in over 230 cities across the nation participated in “walk-ins” to demand the schools all students deserve. In Milwaukee, MTEA members led 117 walk-ins around the city in what was the strongest school participation we have ever seen during a nationally coordinated day of action for our public schools.
The movement of teachers, parents and students we are building is imperative for us to win full and fair funding during our next state budget battle. We know that only by organizing together, will we build enough power to win the fully funded schools MPS students deserve.
