Create alternate pathways to teaching!

Going back to school for Masters degrees in teaching is expensive, time consuming and not feasible for everyone. We must develop new pathways to teaching. We need smaller class sizes in our classrooms, and we need to make teaching an accessible career for anyone. Join us in committing to developing alternate pathways to teaching.

Tell our leaders to support increasing teacher diversity!

Teachers of color comprise only 8 percent of the educator workforce, while over 40 percent of students today are children of color. Our student population continues to become more diverse, yet our state and school districts struggle to reflect that diversity among teachers.

Increase Social Emotional Learning and Mental Health Support in our schools!

We need to incorporate social-emotional learning into our everyday curriculum, and we must provide professional development and training to equip our teachers with the resources needed to manage trauma-related issues in the classroom. Additionally, we can better support teachers’ mental health with managing classroom ratios and increasing the amount of mental health professionals in our schools, preventing them from feeling overwhelmed or overworked.

Ban exclusionary discipline for children under seven years old!

Under the shadow of the pandemic, teachers need professional development and training on how to meet students’ needs and how to discuss sensitive issues within the classroom. Without these resources, students and teachers are at a disadvantage, and cannot fully move forward with their curriculum.

Put teachers’ needs at the forefront of our decisions!

With the possible addition of more work, teachers should be afforded more curriculum prep time and additional pay, as well as access to help and resources to prevent professional burnout.

We need individualized tutoring to mitigate learning loss!

Over the past two years students have suffered learning loss and have missed individualized attention from teachers in the classroom. Therefore, this year’s return to the classroom has presented a greater need for high frequent individualized tutoring in our classrooms to help mitigate the learning loss that occurred throughout the pandemic.

All schools deserve enrichment programs!

While fine arts and enrichment programs are often expected in high-performing and affluent districts, they are considered to be luxuries in underfunded districts. Students need enrichment programs to enhance their learning experiences and to help keep learning interesting and fun.

Support our districts in ending the digital divide!

While schools in affluent areas are using the most up to date chromebooks and smartboards, other districts are left with out of date projectors and laptops. We need to level the playing field, and not only provide less affluent students with access to this technology, but access to high speed internet, allowing them to stay up to speed on the ever changing technology landscape.

Tell legislators to fully fund education NOW!

As our schools decide how to spend their federal funds, they need assurance from the State that the programs they implement will be sustainable beyond when the federal dollars expire. Join us to demand our legislators fully fund education NOW, so our schools can utilize these funds effectively and create real and sustainable change.
