Yesterday’s student walk-outs across the country “renews our hope for positive change,” says Washington Teacher’s Union president Elizabeth Davis. “Teachers nationwide are witnessing the value not only teaching their students civics but the three R’s that are not on the test,” Davis adds. “Resistance, rising up and revolution, all of which enable students to be the change they want to see in the world.” WTU and the American Federation of School Administrators are among the local supporters of the upcoming March 24 rally against gun violence at the U.S. Capitol by students and their allies; details here. “Power to the students and the teachers who teach them,” said Davis.
