BTA Labor Walk to Support Monica Martinez

After the turmoil of the 2017-2018 academic year; with attacks on education from the Con Con, the Janus decision, and the failure to decouple State Test Scores from teacher APPR, it has become evident that we, as educators, cannot sit back and hope our leaders in government will do what’s right for public education. We must find competent people who understand our profession and who will fight to support it. Who else would be better suited for this than one of our own? Monica Martinez, former Brentwood High School teacher and East Middle School Assistant principal, has decided to run for State Senate. This race is close and she needs our help.

Saturday Oct 13, 2018 the Brentwood Teachers Association along with our neighbors in Central Islip, have united together to support her through a labor walk. We need your HELP!

 

Saturday 10/13

·         Monica Martinez, NYS Senate candidate, meet at Brentwood TA office, 350 Motor Pkwy, Hauppauge, bagels and coffee at 8:30, labor walk starting at 9:30.


Why does NYSUT urge members to be engaged in politics?

 

     Almost all of the major problems facing public education, educators and students – including APPR, the overuse and abuse of high-stakes tests, the tax cap, the Gap Elimination Adjustment, the proliferation of charter schools and the privatization of public services – are the result of laws enacted by the politicians in Albany. It is an illusion to believe that we can stay out of politics and still protect public education.
