Milwaukee April 10, Pack The School Board Meeting (Wear Green)! Students & Educators Deserve a Budget That Honors the Classroom

Hosted by Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association

5225 W Vliet, Milwaukee, WI, 5-8 P.M.

We finished our meet and confer session with MPS Administration to find out if they got the message at Thursday night’s (March 22) school board meeting. Hundreds of our members delivered over 3,000 time petitions and loudly demanded more from MPS administration. They aren’t listening!

Rather than listen to educator demands for “Time, Heath, and a Raise,” administration laid out the largest cuts to our healthcare and benefits since Act 10. They also gave a flat “NO” to educator demands for time to better service our students. This means it’s time for educators to take the next step in our plan to win for our students. This district is not broke. We know there are enough good school board members that will use the school district’s resources to help our students. We are resolved to show up and make sure these voices are heard.

On April 10th Administration will officially propose these draconian cuts to the school board. Our members MUST show up and speak out.

We need everyone to wear MTEA green all week, the week after Spring Break.

@UWM via Students for Justice in Palestine – University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Apartheid is a Crime Against Humanity (UN report: “The weight of the evidence supports beyond a reasonable doubt the proposition that Israel is guilty of imposing an apartheid regime on the Palestinian people, which amounts to the commission of a crime against humanity,” wrote the U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia in a report it released on March 15.”
SJP-UWM: “events whose aim is to educate people on the nature of the Israeli occupation of Palestine as an apartheid system of oppression and exploitation. We will be hosting three events on the 27th, 28th, and 29th of March. We hope you will join us in exploring these facets, and in fighting for Palestinian human rights.”
