United Opt Out National endorses Occupy Wall Street and Occupy Together by creating ACTION in solidarity.  PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST FOR ALL INFORMATION ON THE OCCUPATION. WE OPT OUT OF CORPORATE EDUCATION REFORM.

It is time to end Wall Street Occupation of Education.

We asked - they said NO.  We wrote - they said NO.  We sent them research - they said NO.  We say NO.  We opt out. We will put a screeching halt to corporate education by saying NO to the test.

We will occupy the Department of Education in DC from March 30th to April 2nd.  On-going planning can be found at our Facebook Occupy the DOE page.

It's time to put the public back in public education. Occupy the DOE and show them who education REALLY BELONGS to.

Join United Opt Out National & #OCCUPYDOE in Washington D.C.
