Milwaukee, October 30: Standing Strong for a Student & Classroom Centered Budget

Hosted by Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association

5130 W Vliet Street, Milwaukee, 7:30 P.M. 

MPS has a large budget shortfall and is planning a pay freeze for all employees. We MUST stand together and demand the school board:

• Class sizes that enable teachers to connect one-on-one with each student
• Well-rounded curriculum at EVERY school with arts, phy. ed., and music
• A budget that honors the AGR Board Policy
• Full funding of a salary schedule and raises for educational assistants
• Steps and a cost of living increase for every MPS educator
• Increasing administrative fees for privately operated MPS charter schools
• Raising the cost of leases on privately operated MPS charter schools

• Cuts to front-line educators
• Cuts to our students and classrooms
• Excessive use of no-bid contracts
• Additional layers of administration

We need those who signed up for the Rapid Response Team and anyone else able to attend this meeting to make sure we keep the pressure on the board to make the right choices. This meeting will immediately follow the special bilingual education special session that is scheduled from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.
