One way or another, New York's State Senate Republicans will hear from us on Friday, June 1.
If Senate Republicans get their act together and pass real APPR reform, we will rally to thank them. If they continue to stall or refuse to fix New York's rigged, broken evaluation system, we will raise our voices together and DEMAND that they bring APPR reform up for a vote.
Will you join us either way?
We have been working for years to return control over teacher evaluations to local school districts and teachers. Thanks to you, we are closer than ever to fixing New York's flawed and unfair teacher performance review law. Our bill passed the Assembly by a nearly unanimous 133-1 vote. Now the Senate needs to honor teachers by voting on S.8301. Now. With no strings attached.
If Senate Republicans do the right thing and pass the bill, we will gladly use these rallies to thank them. If they don't, we must be there in person to demand that they do!
On Friday, June 1, from 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m., we will be rallying outside Senate Republican offices in support of real APPR reform. We are closer now than we have ever been to achieving victory in this critical fight.
LUT members are being asked to go to the rally at Senator Carl Marcellino's office which is located in Oyster Bay. Click here for more details.
