Advocating for students’ needs and improving our working conditions aren’t competing interests—they are interconnected. Together, we can bargain for enough pay and benefits to sustain a family and win the time and training to constantly improve as educators. When we prioritize the wellness of workers, our students receive a better educational experience.
Racial and social justice
By joining together across race and place, we can rewrite the rules to ensure every student -whether Black, Brown or white- has up-to-date learning materials that give a full picture of our nation’s history, the support of educators who are prepared to foster dialogue on racial justice and its impact on students and communities, and a well-resourced school environment.
