Dr. Beth Bentley

We at the GTA are saddened to learn of the passing of GCSD’s Dr. Beth Bentley.  Beth was an outstanding educator, a fair and honest colleague, and, most importantly, a great person.  We send our sincerest condolences to Beth’s family.  We’ll miss her.

An online memorial for Beth has been created and can be found here.  We will share details about a planned memorial for Dr. Bentley that is being planned for February 15th.

Take Action- Fully Fund Foundation Aid for Public Schools! #FundOurFutureNY @nysut


Inadequate funding is the primary driver of education inequality in our state. In the coming weeks and months, I (Andy Pallotta) will personally be traveling across the state, touring schools with local members, other NYSUT leaders, and Legislators to draw attention to the impact that inadequate funding has on our schools, our kids, and our communities. Schools in our state are owed more than $3.4 billion in Foundation Aid.

Take action NOW at the NYSUT Member Action Center to tell state legislators that fully funding the Foundation Aid formula is the right thing to do for our future and our schools.
