2022 National Week Against School Pushout October 8 – October 16
Our theme this year is Building Schools our Communities Deserve Now! Join us to hold events and actions across the country.
Each October, a national coalition of over 100 organizations, hosts a series of events, teach-ins, rallies, protests, and workshops across the country designed to bring attention to the ongoing and devastating impacts of school policing and zero-tolerance discipline policies. Beginning on Saturday, October 8th, and running through October 16th, the National Week of Action Against School Push-out will bring students, parents, education advocates, lawyers, and many others committed to social and educational justice together to amplify the nationwide call for schools to move away from punitive, cold, criminalizing policies and towards emotionally-safe, restorative and culturally responsive school communities.
Local STK Chapters across the country will also be hosting events in their communities, where virtual and remote learning has only intensified pre-existing structural inequalities. Remote learning environments are actively being hardened and create many students’ learning barriers. The Black, Brown, and working-class students who do manage to get online risk being criminalized in their own homes.
