We believe in:
- Bargaining, not begging! Educators should have the right to collectively bargain working contracts because our working conditions are our children's learning conditions. If professional athletes and Superintendents can negotiate their contracts, then educators should be allowed to do the same.
- Effective teachers in every classroom! The most important work of teachers is to elevate teaching as a profession - through the quality of our work, our practices, and our behaviors in the profession and engagement in the decision-making of our schools and LISD. Only then can we ensure that all students are taught by an effective teacher.
- Active Engagement! Educators must be politically active through volunteerism in campaigns, donations to our PAC committees, lobbying our legislators, and actively influencing the party of your choice. Politics is about telling your story-a story that only you can tell. Every decision that affects a teacher and child is a political decision. We owe it to ourselves, our students, and our profession to actively engage in the political process from Lewisville to Austin to Washington.
- Quality Public Schools! Every child deserves a great public school. Children are our future entrepreneurs and leaders. They deserve quality public schools with effective teachers.
