Vermont Educators' Bill of Rights

Vermont’s educators deserve fair pay, time to collaborate, and safe schools. A Bill of Rights for Educators – and Our Students

As Vermont educators, you deserve to be paid a good wage, work in safe classrooms, and be allowed to collaborate with your colleagues as you teach the state’s children. Pledge your support now for Vermont Educators’ Bill of Rights.

Our Vision

The people who work in Vermont’s public schools give their all to every student, every day, in every local community.

They deserve, like every employee, dignified and competitive compensation; to work and teach in safe conditions; and to have the time, resources, and autonomy to ensure that Vermont’s public-school students thrive and become happy, healthy, and successful adults.

We’re all in this to help shape our kids’ lives—teachers and ESPs together.

What’s so great about public schools is that they bring so many students together with various perspectives, so it’s a real opportunity to help them develop a more humanizing approach to viewing the world.
