This is a collection of adults and children's messages that challenge public school to become something more than it is - messages that dare public school to serve students' passions instead of politicians and vendors' coffers.
So many of the divisions and false notions of social order we cling to as adults are entrenched in the culture of public education. We want to take our next step in challenging that culture, and we ask for your help in helping us capture and share counter-narratives to today's test-addled, pop notions of schooling.

I Occupy Education by helping to bring communities together through helping us understand our similarities rather than only focusing on our differences!  I work in an environment where not all of my ideals mesh with the standards of the company, but I see HOPE and I SPEAK POWER to that HOPE, and I BELIEVE I am transforming community education every day!!!
 
I Occupy Education by not forgetting those INSIDE and OUTSIDE of the system, both educators and students, praying for their freedom, so that their own thoughts, their own voice, might reclaim what their heart is already telling them what they already know.    
 
I Occupy Education by PROMOTING Progressive Learning to future educators. I do this by speaking its voice, writing its narrative, and by living its truth.  I believe in its necessity, for the betterment of America and the betterment of the world.  
 
I will always Occupy Education by standing up for the type of learning that transforms people and not capitalist agendas.  I will always Occupy Education if it means working to improve how we all learn and will learn and who we can learn from, both in the present, the past and the future.  
 
I Occupy Education.  I am the Holistic Education.  The Progressive Educator.  The Community Educator.  The 99% Educator.  I am ME!
