Public Schools and the National Education Association Rhode IslandThe public school is a promise. It is a promise of hope for a better life, for peace, and for freedom. Nowhere is this hopemore evident than in the promise we make to all: we will educate all the residents of this country to the best of our ability –and theirs. That promise is inherent in all the promises of freedom and equality in both our state and federal Constitutions.That means that each of us should have the opportunity for it all. Every child should have a chance in music, athletics, art,languages, and higher algebra. It means we help all students to dream great dreams …to dare to try.We really need the public school in our society. Some of us need it more than others – but we all need it. The public schoolis the driving force in perpetuating freedom, equality and diversity. It is the vehicle used by the have-nots to climb up andout.The public school needs our support and our scrutiny. It cannot be an afterthought or its failure scrutiny. It cannot be anafterthought or its failure will deter those dreams, that hope, that makes a country great. Freedom is not free and neitheris the public school.NEA Rhode Island advocates for equality and opportunity for all citizens. Society must do its part in providing the meansto achieve a quality public school for every child. The public school is our best hope for the future: a promise that mustbe kept.New this year!Course Information• The 5k certified course islocated in Goddard Memorial Park,Ives Road, Warwick.
