According to leaders of the Save Our Schools March, four of them were just invited to the White House on Friday, and the Education Department is trying to work out a meeting with a major march participant and Secretary Arne Duncan.
The best way to approach this would be to focus on concrete, on the ground impact of Obama and Duncan's policies, and not get sucked into them saying that the want something completely different from that (e.g., We don't want a single-minded emphasis on testing, really!).
I like their approach even better--let the White House muck-a-mucks come to the rally, then meet with them. If they want to hear our message, well, we're right in their neighborhood.
I carrying some mead with me--I'll be getting into town sometime tomorrow morning.
Yes, their idea is even better, no question.
