As Detroiters resist the forces of local “policy reform,” we realize our struggle is not unique. From Philadelphia to New Orleans to Los Angeles communities are resisting national and local assaults on education. In Detroit, and across the country, we are beginning to move from resistance to realizing a transformative education. This PMA calls for students, parents, communities, educators, activists, and organizers from across the country to share their stories, learn from each other’s struggles, and envision a new education. We come together for an education that is place and community based, and that deepens humanity.
