Get ready for a Thursday full of rallies in SF

On Thursday throughout the Bay Area, thousands of teachers, parents and students are scheduled to partake in a day filled with rallies and marching and all the impassioned speeches and protests one would expect when drumming up the topic of massive state cuts to education.

A series of events protesting budget cuts to education will swarm The City Thursday, according to the United Educators of San Francisco.

A “Rally for California’s Future” will take place at 5 p.m. at City Hall and includes speeches from community members, it said. There’ll be entertainment, as well, including “musical and dramatic performances.”

“The event is part of a statewide day of action for public education during which tens-of-thousands of people will stand up in unison to demand reform,” UESF said.

There will be teach-ins, marches, rallies and letter writing in The City and throughout the Bay Area starting at 7 a.m., it said.
