We have started a list serve so that people - all over the state - can communicate about the current crisis in education, especially adult education.
This list serve is for EVERYONE for cares about education - students, teachers, parents, college students, adult education students, friends, neighbors, taxpayers - EVERYONE.
Teacher David Doneff has written this explanation of what a list serve is about, how it can help us, and how you can join:
As you may know, we have a political action committee at school that is trying to figure out how to fight the cuts and closures happening to adult schools around the state. We think we can no longer sit by and watch other adult schools close while hoping that we won’t be next because of our extremely supportive district. We also believe that it is ineffective for schools to fight individually; to have any power we must fight together.
As a first step, we have created an email list/Yahoo group to allow us to communicate with other adult schools and anyone who wishes to support adult education, and all public education, in California . We hope that you will join our group. Even if you don’t want or are unable to participate politically, we still encourage you to join so that you can receive emails and information about what’s going on.
It’s simple to do.
1. Go to www.Yahoo.com
2. Under Yahoo Sites, click More Yahoo Sites
3. Then click Groups
4. And then search for adulteducationmatters.
Note: You will need a Yahoo ID (that means a yahoo email) to join, but you can choose to receive emails at a non-Yahoo address when you sign up. After that, you never need to use your Yahoo ID again if you don’t want to.
Also: You can go onto the group page and check out the Files section, which has some information about adult ed. More will be added.
Please encourage anyone and everyone you know who wishes to support adult ed and all public education, to join this group. This includes educators, students, parents, citizens, and anyone else who cares about public education. Let me know if you have any questions or need help.
