Educators and Staff
I support a fair wage for our educators and school support staff, including bus drivers, that truly reflects their importance and their impact on the lives of our children.
Having spoken with many educators and school support staff in our county, I have heard about their many significant concerns including the following:
The current retaliatory culture between teachers/staff and administrators.
A lack of funding that has caused a shortage of crucial staffing, resulting in difficult working conditions.
Restrictive guidelines that are preventing educators from contributing their professional opinions on both best learning practices and critical budget decisions for their classrooms.
Evolving uncertainty around the methods of transportation and busing for the upcoming school year.
