ACLU Visits Palisades, Santa Monica and New Roads

October 10, 2012:  Brooks Allen, ACLU Director of Education Advocacy, returned to Los Angeles to speak with students at Palisades Charter HS, Santa Monica HS, New Roads School and representatives from the Santa Clarita Valley STF chapters.  Students learned more about the reality of the state of public education in their hometown and the potential devastating impact of the upcoming election. Student leaders pressed Allen on how to effectively engage public officials and strengthen their campaign to protect the right to education.

To broaden the audience for their campaign, Santa Monica HS students interviewed Allen for their student-run web program, “The World This Week” (video above) and students at each school are writing for their respective school publications.
