Nearly 100 people representing at least a dozen NYSUT local unions, parents, students, labor leaders, religious leaders, civic leaders and community members huddled together in the cold evening air outside Rochester’s School Without Walls Thursday.

They sent a clear message to the new Trump administration that any attempt to privatize, demonize, supplant or divest in public education will be met with resistance.
