#RedForEd — Ohio Stands in Solidarity With UTLA
From Oakland to Los Angeles, educators are dedicated to providing the quality public education every child deserves, regardless of their zip code. Educators will not stop until their students have the resources they need to succeed, including:
- Smaller class sizes / Less testing and more teaching
- More nurses, librarians, counselors and psychologists
- Adequate funding / Stronger oversight and regulation of charter schools
- Competitive wages to keep quality educators from being priced out of living where they teach
Across California, and the nation, far too many educators are challenged to teach with dwindling resources, deteriorating schools, and class sizes that prevent them from giving each child the attention they deserve.
“We Are Red For Ed, and our students deserve better!”
Administrators need to recognize that schools are not banks, and children are more than test scores have cut resources and ignored educators for far too long. The national #RedForEd movement has unified educators to fight back for their students. Across the nation, educators are boldly proclaiming: “We Are Red For Ed, and our students deserve better!”
We need to keep the national momentum going! Here’s how:
1. Sign this petition as well send an additional message of support to our friends in @UTLAnow at this Action Network site.
