What is it you love about school that you have lost because of high stakes testing, school closings, budget cuts, curriculum losses, teacher firings, and other educational catastrophes?

Save Our Schools invites students, teachers, parents, guardians, and all supporters of public education to join a nation-wide art campaign to express the harmful effects of corporate education policies on our communities. Join The Campaign for Artful Resistance.
