Over 150 parent, student, teacher and community groups from more than 15 cities participated in the National Week of Action for the Public Schools All Our Children Deserve in late November. Staging school walk-ins, holding rallies and packing school board meetings, organizers across the country pushed for sustainable community schools in their cities. All students deserve the kinds of resources and opportunities that will help them succeed, from rigorous academics and adequate school funding to wraparound health supports and out-of-school learning programs.
In Detroit, a group of concerned community members walked to Western International High School with Marvella Gutierrez to highlight the lack of safe and reliable transportation options faced by students across the city.
