Why Labor Matters In The Schools
Labor history is mostly unknown and that is where “Labor In The Schools” comes in. The California Federation of Teachers has set up a program and educational material to help teachers and educators make labor part of the curriculum in the schools.
“Labor in the Schools” is a workshop for teachers, people who work with K-12 students, and anyone else who is interested. It will feature materials designed by the Labor in the Schools Committee, some interactive activities and simulations that focus on cooperation, worldwide wealth inequality, and strategies for children.
Participants will receive free materials and view the Hall of Labor, a Big Poster gallery of famous labor leaders and their biographies. Nothing is more important to our movement than to educate our base: working class young people.
THIS IS LONG OVERDUE AND URGENTLY NEEDED. This is the education we never received in school. BE THERE TO MAKE SURE LABOR HISTORY IS TAUGHT EVERYWHERE. This program is a MILESTONE to be actively encouraged and broadened to reach every school in the USA. OUR HISTORY IS NO MYSTERY.
