Kids Rock to Open Schools

Kids Rock to Open Schools

Open Schools for ALL Children

Why is this important?

We are school children. We want our schools opened now for ALL Children!
Paint rocks as symbol of light and rainbow of hope. Leave as many trails as you can, at schools and everywhere! Let us speak up!
We miss our friends. We miss our daily lives, our world. We are stuck ...at home. We are waiting…..in our bedrooms, in our kitchens, waiting….stuck.
You locked us out of our lives. Don’t leave some of us behind, when our siblings return to their lives, when our parents carry on in their lives, when the whole world carries on but without us…fix a solution for us too! For ALL kids. Give us back our lives! Some of us are smaller, more alone. Sometimes we are sad.
Covid Home-schooling is not realistic for lots of us. Education is not reaching us. Our parents are busy, not school teachers. Open our schools now, and safely!
Chinese proverb: “Learning is like rowing upstream: not to advance is to drop backwards”
Malcom X: “ Education is the passport to the future”
Allan Bloom: “Education is the movement from darkness to light”
Article 42 of the Constitution states that “ the State shall provide for free primary education …..and, when the public good requires it, provide other educational facilities or institutions! yay!
