Voices Rising

Lots is going on around the state.

Gilberta Gonzalez
All over California,

teachers, administrators, community members,
legislators, advocates, business people, academics
and STUDENTS are lifting their voices in support of Adult Education.

For a powerful and inspiring example, look here and read about Gilberta Gonzalez's speech in Sacramento last Friday, April 19th, 2012

At this same CCAE State Conference in Sacramento, teachers Lisa Dolehide and Cynthia Eagleton (myself) gave a workshop on ESL Student Councils and Cultivating Student Voice.

Lisa's handout will be online soon.

In the meantime, you can go here for more info on cultivating student voice at your school.

These things work together, of course - Student Councils and Student Voice.

Student Council is authentic leadership and voice in action.  It fuels and models activism, leadership, unity, and power.

I will continue to add posts about Student Voice - examples, ideas, possibilities for working together.

Go here for  the LA Times article on the 10,000 signatures in 10 days that Gilberta helped to collect.

And remember -

Keep signing and sharing the Rebuild Adult Education - K12 Schools & Designated Funding Petition.
