New Business Item 57 Adopted as Amended
The NEA will publicize our support for the continued work action of educators and the fact that our union's alliance with students and the community is key to winning our demands. We will publicize the necessity now for teachers' independent struggle to defend public education: win significant class-size reductions; significant improvements in educators' pay and working conditions; defend special education programs; and re-establish the principle of equal quality education for all on the basis of a fully-funded public education system.
In both "red" and "blue" states, teacher strikes have won real gains. When we take independent mass action, allied with students and the community, we can achieve full funding for public education.
