We wanted to share some of the photos from the internet of the crowds--an estimated number of over 1,000 teachers, parents, and other citizens from all walks of life gathered on Monday February 16th!
Our ICPE -- Monroe County & south Central Indiana's chairperson, Cathy Fuentes-Rohwer's speech (text found on previous blog post) resonated so much that versions of it went viral on the internet. You can watch it if you click HERE.
Our friend of Northeast Indiana Friends of Public Education, Phyllis Bush, had a wonderful speech which started things off and gave her a standing ovation. See it HERE.
Many more speakers had wonderful things to say! One of the highlights was the arrival of Glenda Ritz midway through a teacher's speech to a cheering crowd-- it was as if she were a rock star! Glenda Ritz represents so much to so many...it's not a surprise.
Enjoy our slide show.
