Connecticut Education Association Statement
September 10, 2012
Statement from CEA President Sheila Cohen in Support of Chicago Teachers Union
In this tough economic climate marked by increasing poverty, budget cuts, and attacks on the middle class and labor unions, we stand in solidarity with our professional colleagues, who continue to fight for the resources children need to ensure that all students succeed and have the best public education possible.
This strike is about the shared commitment for the future of our children and public education in America. Educators and students in our nation's classrooms are discouraged by broken promises and an environment that doesn't respect teachers as partners in educational achievement.
America's teachers all want what's best for their students and for the nation's public schools. That's why teachers are leading the movement toward advancing solutions to the country's most pressing challenges regarding public education, and focusing on equality and equity for all of America's children.
The Connecticut Education Association represents 43,000 teachers in Connecticut.
