Petition in support of Providence teachers
Mayor Taveras of Providence fired (not laid off) all of them, every single teacher, effective the end of this year. Looks like an end run.

Update – for those of you in Providence, there is a vigil tomorrow, after school:
Join Students from across Providence on Monday, March 7th from 3-4pm
We will meet in front of Classical High at 3 then head over to in front of the Providence School Department (in front of Central High)
We as students should have a say in decisions that impact students, our teachers and our schools. The Mayor is announcing on Tuesday what schools he is going to try to close so come out now to demand that you have a say! Join students to stand up against attacks on our right to an education.
Students deserve stable schools where they are not punished for a fiscal crisis they didn’t create. Our schools are facing budget cuts and we must come together to make sure that they listen to our voices.
• Join us March 7 from 3-4! It is fine to come at 315 if you are coming from the Met, Hope High or other Providence Schools…
• Invite other students to our facebook event and encourage others to join our facebook page “Providence SLAP”
• Spread the word to your classmates about this important event! Encourage fellow students, family and friends to sign the online petition: http://tinyurl.com/SupportPVDSchools
