Farewell to a True Warrior for Public Ed – Wear Red for Ed bids ‘La Grâce du Ciel’ to mother, educator, activist, and union sister, Kathy DuPuis. We will not give up!


We lost a good friend and warrior for public education this week. She came home from a long trip, tired and worn out, logged onto her computer and commented on a Diane Ravitch blog,

She then posted it as a link on her Facebook, laid down to rest … and left us.

Rest in Peace, Kathy DuPuis – mother, educator, union sister, fellow activist and co-admin of Wear Red for Ed.

Rest easy, Kathy, and know that you did not go gentle into the night. Go knowing your last words will be remembered and honored. Go easy and know… we will not give up.

Peace and Blessings.

  1. She was a awesome gal that was fully capable of debating her position on public education. Louisiana lost a great warrior with her passing. I first met her when she was a board member with the Louisiana Association of Educators and remained loyal and active after she retired when health and family circumstances allowed. Truly a “warrior” in promoting public education and a smarter educator for having known and worked with her!
