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.

On 14th November, there has been a general strike in Europe.
In Barcelona, a group of teachers tried to closed the Department of Education in Catalonia, preventing bosses and politics from coming into the building. They are responsible of Education cuts, which include 3,000 theachers fired and a process of privatization of state schools. This politics affects directly the poorest people.
Later, these teachers -about 200- cut some streets peacefully, at the same time that  the rest of labour sectors were protesting in other places against the politics of Catalan and Spanish governments, who are destroying our social rights.
Police, without a bagde on their uniform (which is compulsory by law) started to attack demonstrators who were exercising their right to freedom of expression.
Stop repression!
Freedom of expression!
Equal opportunities in Education!
A teacher.
