AFT-Maryland members, staff, and community partners joined other members of AFT and The Alliance to Reclaim Our Schools on Tuesday, May 13, 2014, for a rally at the Supreme Court. The event marks the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education.
On this, the 60th anniversary of that ruling promising racial justice in our public schools, we recognize that many schools are still separate, and still unequal for many.
"This is why we do what we do," said AFT President Randi Weingarten, as children gathered around her. "As educators, the first image in our minds is these kids. Sixty years ago, Brown v. Board created access. Yet today, we still struggle with true equity. Sixty years later, we need to help ourselves to change the trajectory."
