@NYSUT statement on state COVID vaccination plans

“We have advocated that all education professionals — both teachers and support staff, who provide critical services to their communities — be given priority access to the COVID vaccine should they choose to receive it. So it’s welcome news that they can begin scheduling a vaccine appointment next week as part of the state’s 1b priority group.’

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.
