Is your local in the midst of contract negotiations? You’re in good company.
Teachers across the state are making the case for investing in education, and they’re turning out in force—and in red—to make their message clear.
Last week, a sea of #RedforEd greeted Danbury Board of Education members at a meeting where more than 250 Danbury teachers filled the room and spilled over into the hallways and outside the building.
“We are an investment for this community,” third grade teacher and NEA-Danbury President Erin Daly told Board of Education members. “When you invest in us, you’re investing in your children. When you invest in us, you’re investing in your community. If we as a community refuse to invest in our teachers, we are revealing to our students how little we value them.”
