|TOPIC: The Future: NEA’s Vanguard for Collective Action|
Join Philly LERA for a timely presentation on the National Education Association’s unique and creative organizing program to engage educators in social justice issues in order to improve teaching and learning conditions in public schools. Although its Center for Organizing was created to strengthen relationships between the NEA and its members, recent polls have shown increasing public support for public school teachers’ right to strike, even in states without collective bargaining laws.
Jim Testerman, the Senior Director for NEA’s Center for Organizing, and Jeff Taschner, Executive Director of the Delaware Education Association, will discuss the cultural shift at the national, state and local level and will discuss the educator walkouts this past spring and the RedForEd movement. Don’t miss this meeting!
