Rosa Jimenez's notes from previous General Assembly:
Students and Parents from 10 different schools across LA participated. Many teachers from an even more schools and community college students attended the General Assembly as well.
Members from half a dozen community organizations participated as well as reps from various labor organizations and neighborhood councils.
As always, the General Assembly started with a Snapshot of a Social Movement—this time focusing on lessons that can be learned from students getting organized for educational justice across the nation.
Then the General Assembly created space for students, parents and teachers to discuss where to take our movement. We want to build off of our last year’s organizing and successful actions, including our March where we called upon LAUSD’s School Board to take up the issues that students, parents and teachers of the Grassroots Coalition have been organizing around. Students met as a constituency group, as did parents and the teachers in a third group.
The Grassroots Coalition of Schools LA Students Deserve came up with some great ideas which we will be announcing soon.
