Today's rally for public education outside Governor Cuomo's office is important. The office is at 633 3rd Avenue in Manhattan. This blog is fully supportive.
The bigger the crowd, the better our chances of moving the Legislature in our direction on education. We need to stop the Governor's anti-public school agenda. The piece below with details on the demonstration is taken from the UFT Weekly Update for Chapter Leaders.
With budget negotiations in Albany going down to the wire (April 1 is the deadline), Saturday's (today's) rally has become more important than ever. We're looking forward to seeing you, your family and your colleagues for the rally outside Gov. Cuomo's Midtown office to demand that the governor fully fund our schools, limit high-stakes testing, support our struggling schools and fairly evaluate teachers. The governor’s office is at 633 3rd Avenue at 41st Street. Please enter 3rd Avenue on 36th Street and avoid walking down 3rd Avenue from 42nd Street. If you are arriving at Grand Central Terminal, UFT volunteers will be on hand to direct you down Lexington Avenue to 36th Street. If you'll be tweeting or posting to Instagram or Facebook from the rally, be sure to use the hashtag #ProtectOurSchools so that your posts get noticed. And feel free to tweet at the governor at @NYGovCuomo so his social media team hears us. Send your best rally photos at high resolution to email@example.com.
