MTEA union educators will wear RED this Wednesday to celebrate Tuesday’s School Board victories and every Wednesday following until we see our students and our classrooms fully funded! We will wear red to show our collective solidarity and strength as we organize to win an MPS budget and a state budget that are student and educator-centered.
MPS Administration’s current meet and confer proposals have been unacceptable and Republicans in Madison continue to say they will block the state funding increases Governor Evers campaigned on. Educators from around the state are uniting to demand better from their local districts and the state. We will fight for the funding we know our students and classrooms deserve and every Wednesday our RED will act as a reminder of our commitment. We will take photos and post on social media explaining why we’re wearing red using the hashtags #WIRedForED and #FightForFunding.
