Contract Ratified!

We had a great turn out for this Tuesday’s ratification vote, and the Memorandum was adopted!

As a negotiating team, we couldn’t be happier with all the member involvement: submitting proposals, attending update meetings, reading newsletters, asking insightful questions, and most importantly talking with fellow teachers about how we should move forward as a local and as a school district.

Thank you,

High Stakes Testing

Less Testing, More Learning

The MTA is joining with the Massachusetts Education Justice Alliance to send the message that it is time to stop the testing madness and rethink the state’s educational goals and priorities.

Week of Action Activities

Monday, June 8: Sticker Day — The MTA will supply locals with stickers to wear.

Tuesday, June 9: Contact Your Legislator Day — Visit legislators’ offices, make phone calls and tell your stories. Call for legislators to support H. 340, the MTA bill calling for a three-year moratorium on PARCC and high-stakes testing.

Wednesday, June 10: Social Media Day and PARCC Forum Day — Spread the word through social media. Attend the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education forum on PARCC and high-stakes testing at Bridgewater State University and tell board members why high-stakes testing is bad for our students and our schools.

Thursday, June 11: Public Speak-Out Day — Attend the hearing at the State House if you can. The MTA will provide reimbursement for a substitute in each local to allow one member to attend. If you cannot get to the hearing, arrange a gathering in your community or join one of the regional actions being planned with the Massachusetts Education Justice Alliance.

Friday, June 12: Union Solidarity Day — Wear your union colors to work.

The statewide Week of Action has been organized by a newly formed coalition called the Massachusetts Education Justice Alliance — the MEJA. The MTA, AFT Massachusetts, the Boston Teachers Union, Jobs With Justice, Citizens for Public Schools, the Greater Boston Labor Council, Mass Alliance and other labor and community groups are members of the coalition.
