A Brief Look at the Rally for Public Education at Boston Common

On May 20, a bright and sunny afternoon on Saturday, a mass rally for the public education took place at the Boston Common. A group of representative organizations including Massachusetts Teachers Association(MTA), Boston Teachers Union (BTU), Massachusetts Education Justice Alliance, and PHENOM (Public Higher Education Network of Massachusetts) showed up in their support of public higher education. Massachusetts Jobs with Justice joined the huge crowd at the rally, standing in solidarity with teachers and students around the state.
