I am an educator when I weave pictures and stories into documentaries about issues that I feel are important.
I am an educator when I discuss new things that I learn with the people around me.
I am an educator when I ask questions of myself and others.
I am an educator when I ask a child how many marbles they have instead of just giving them some and letting them play by themselves.
I am an educator when I try to open my heart and let others know that they are doing well.
I am an educator when I try to educate myself on what is going on in the world.
I OCCUPY EDUCATION
By raising awareness that privatization , e.g. vouchers, and other “Corporate ED” reforms increases the EXCLUSION of poor, English Language Learners, and/or Minority children from Quality education opportunities!
This is in support of Heather’s post.
Protesting is a family affair. I was out with my family yesterday.
How are you occupying your classroom or educational setting, to stand up for what you believe?
Chad and David got it rolling. Now we need to keep it going.
Occupy Education. Reclaiming Our Voice In Education.
I am the out-of-work educator, who holds a Master of Arts in Education Degree, a Bachelor of Arts Degree, 3 volunteer jobs, $40,000 in debt, 5 resumes, 10 cover letters, and several years of youth experience.
I occupy education, everyday, by holding out hope that the opportunity to educate our youth will happen soon, so I can facilitate them in the learning of not repeating the same mistakes others have made in our financial sector.
I am the Progressive Educator; I am the 99%
Believe me, I know that education is serious, and that there is a lot at stake as we try to nurture young people to become agents of change and visionaries who will create the world we want to see. But they are still kids! Share the gift of laughter!!I occupy education.
I am driven by a deep personal connection to Truth + Love to Transform an antiquated education system that is bound to Capitalism into one that nurtures, inspires, + connects children, parents, and teachers in a deep relationship to Truth + Love! #Occupy Education
Please add ways you are making your students, or children’s life better. Help us Occupy Education! We can reclaim our voice in education! We need to start today. No more time to wait for superman or any heroes! We are the heroes, now is the the time to stand up and join together! Parents, Teachers, students, community members, we need everyone! Join us now!

Active participation means more than being entertaining. It means that your students are a real part of education and not just recipients of it.
