The Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association will be holding an Informational Picket on Tuesday, April 24th from 4:30pm-6:30pm at MPS Central Office, 5225 W. Vliet St., Milwaukee, WI 53208. Please join educators, parents, students, and community members to fight for a just budget!
Last week, over 1,200 Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association (MTEA) members, parents, students and supporters packed Milwaukee Public Schools Central Office, filling three overflow rooms and hallways with educators, parents, and students demanding a budget that honors the classroom and education workers.
MTEA’s demands are simple:
• Keep budget cuts away from schools!
• Time for teachers and educational assistants to meet the needs of their students.
• Quality, affordable healthcare for ALL full-time education workers – including subs!
• Raises to attract and retain the education workers our students deserve.
MPS Administration has accepted and passed along years of budget cuts and austerity to Milwaukee Public School students and classrooms. Tattered textbooks, crowded classrooms, and shrinking art, music, and physical education programs are just a few of the consequences students and educators face thanks to Scott Walker’s unprecedented public education cuts. Enough is enough!
Click here to let the MTEA know you’re coming to join educators, students, and families at the 4/24 Picket to Defend our Schools outside MPS Central Office at 5225 W Vliet St., Milwaukee, WIfrom 4:30-6:30pm!
See you on the picket line!
