Teacher Appreciation Week
Have you been watching as your peers in Arizona, Colorado, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and West Virginia have taken to state capitols by the tens of thousands to stand up for their schools? They have demanded an end to shortchanging their schools and students, as well as stand up for fair pay and decent working conditions. If you thought that what they are facing can’t happen here, look no further than the governor’s education plan, which would make massive cuts in programs that our kids depend on while slashing more than 2,000 of your jobs. Join your colleagues and others for a rally to show how much we love Vermont’s public schools – and to let the governor and lawmakers know we won’t stand for this attack on our schools, educators, and students.
