As educators, you deal with a host of issues and challenges in your schools.
The mental health crisis is bigger than ever. You see what many don’t–the effects of student trauma on children and classrooms every day– and we know you do your best to help all your students.
Too many schools have poorly ventilated classrooms, cold classrooms where students have to wear coats and gloves indoors. There’s mold growing in air ducts and behind ceiling tiles and other conditions that make it, frankly, impossible to teach, or to learn.
We know that improving mental health supports, focusing on student health and wellness, and recruiting and retaining educators are critical to our students’ school success.
And we need to make sure legislators know it too.
Tell you legislators what they don’t see, so that they understand what the needs are, so that they hear our calls to action, and they see the faces and hear the real-life stories behind those calls.
Share your personal stories, your students’ stories, their families stories by telling legislators what they don’t see in your classrooms.
