Cesar Chavez was a BAT & so am I
By:  Dr. Yohuru Williams

 Ceser would have opposed the Common Core, Corporate Ed Reform and the dismantling of public education. Cesar said . . .

"Students must have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves - and be free."...

"Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?"

"We draw our strength from the very despair in which we have been forced to live. We shall endure."

"Preservation of one's own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures."

"From the depth of need and despair, people can work together, can organize themselves to solve their own problems and fill their own needs with dignity and strength."

Cesar Chavez was a BAT & so am I and so are you . . . Happy Cesar Chavez Day and long live BAT activism
