Our 2015 Top Ten

Dear supporter of strong public education for all children,

During this annual time of reflection and renewal, we thought it would be fun to share our own top ten list as 2015 comes to a close.

The list below highlights some of our many accomplishments together, as well as great reasons to support Raise Your Hand with an end of the year donation.

LSCs, oh LSCs (open letters to LSCs and their school communities)

First a letter to schools who don't understand why their Local School Council wants to cancel (or renew) their principal's contract. Then a letter to the LSCs. Finally, a list of things that school communities can do when they think their LSC goes rogue.
