Rally time

Full disclosure, only one of these is a true “rally.”

Nearly 900 people will be at the Hart Theatre at the Egg in downtown Albany for the small cities and rural areas lobbying effort Wednesday. NYSUT officers Andy Pallotta and Kathleen Donahue are among the dozens who will speak. I will be tweeting it live at BetsyS48 and Liza Frenette will blog.

More than 500 are expected Thursday at the Nyack Center, 58 Depew Ave. in Nyack. Parents, students and teachers will meet with state Sen. David Carlucci and Assembly members Ken Zebrowski and Ellen Jaffe.

More than 1,000 are expected at Niagara Square for a pro-education rally starting at 6:30 Friday. There’s a powerful lineup of speakers, including lawmakers and NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi. If the technology works, we’ll be tweeting that event live as well.
