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.

In Takoma Park, Maryland, the city council is considering lowering the voting age to 16. This is big because if it passes, 16 year olds in the city will have a say in their education. NYRA is even launching a big campaign around it.
