1.) Visit the Network for Public Education website.

2.) Write letters to the editor of your local newspaper or website in support of your public schools.

3.) Visit your local public school. Offer to volunteer. See what teachers do.

4.) Join any local or state organization that supports public education.

5.) Support the arts for all children. Demand that all children have time and resources for singing, dancing and other joyful activities.
