An awesome group of faculty and staff from my school who wore red on January 4th to support our public school colleagues. There were a bunch more who wore red but weren't free when we took the picture. A huge thanks to all these folks.
One of our staff people wrote the following. It puts all this in the proper perspective I think.
Awwww... I forgot to wear the red shirt I put out last night. But, son is a product of a public school and I support their fundraising efforts. It is really tough! The schools are cutting back on the arts, athletics, and many other enrichment programs.
In Philadelphia, some independent schools partner with inner-city public schools for music, dance, drama...sports, and some elective courses. Quite a beautiful thing!
