Join the Teachers of the Year in Speaking Out Against the Detention of Children
Last year, the administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” immigration policy. This policy resulted in about 3,000 children being separated from their parents or guardians and being detained in federal detention facilities. Currently 2,800 minors remain at the center and the number continues to grow.
Next month, educators led by many of our states’ Teacher of the Year will lead a “teach-in” outside the massive detention camp in Tornillo, Texas. The teach in, with lessons delivered by educators, will tell the nation what is happening with the children and who they are.
The coalition sponsoring the teach-in is Teachers Against Child Detention. The Network for Public Education strongly supports their efforts and asks you to go here and sign up to do a simple action in support!
Happy New Year and thanks for all that you do!
