So I have heard that the Arlington ISD is heading to Austin to protest the education budget cuts. I think this is awesome and I totally want to get the FWISD teachers and parents in on this...however, they plan to protest during SXSW, one of the largest music/movie festivals in the US. Having been before it's almost impossible to get hotels. A day trip may be too hard for everyone, it's a 4 hour drive from DFW. Any thoughts? Of course calling our lovely Rick Perry would help too, but man, you can really make a statement with live art teacher bodies. Come on brain! Work!
If you would like to make a call to Gov. Perry's office the number is 800-252-9600.
Here's the link to the Arlington story.
