We’re making our way all over North Carolina asking school works one simple question. What do you want and need for Our Students, Our Classrooms, Ourselves, Our Communities and Our Union? The responses have been moving, inspiring, and heartbreaking, but one thing they haven’t been is unrealistic. Every response we have received has centered around meeting the basic needs of our students and school workers, so that our schools and communities can grow and thrive. For those of us who have been in the profession for 12+ years, we know what that looks like. But for newer teachers, all they’ve known is the vicious and radical attacks on public education that have left us in a dire state. We know what fully funded schools look like and we are prepared to fight to get those schools back and to win the resources our kids and teachers need!
