North Carolina lost a brave warrior this week, one that stood proudly and fought hard for the students in their public schools. Rodney Ellis, former president of the North Carolina Association of Educators suddenly passed away after recently having stepped down from his four years as president. The Badass Teachers Association would like to send our condolences to the educators in North Carolina in their time of loss. In Rodney's memory we are urging educators around the country to wear red on Wednesday. Please take a picture of yourself and post it on Facebook and Twitter using the hastags #wearred4publiced and #RedforRodney.
