Share your real stories to support #FutureForward

NYSUT needs your help to spread the word about our #FutureForward initiative. There’s no better way to highlight the needs of our schools than to share real stories from real educators, students and parents.

  • This informative AFL-CIO podcast on the #FutureForward initiative features three teachers/task force members: Jen Wolfe, Oceanside FT; Adrienne Cohan, Starpoint TA, and Amy Hysick, North Syracuse EA .

Union supports action by Regents

The statewide union applauded as the Board of Regents this week discussed plans to end the edTPA certification requirement for aspiring teachers, which is an unnecessary and costly barrier standing in the way of high-quality future educators joining the profession. The Regents also rejected a SUNY Board of Trustees Charter School Committee recommendation to authorize new charter schools in Wyandanch and Central Islip, and NYSUT thanked the board “for listening and standing up to those who would rather rubber stamp new charters than take a hard look at what’s right for these Long Island communities.”

Feeding the hungry: It’s union work

This week, NYSUT partnered with the Capital District Area Labor Federation, the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany to sponsor a drive thru food pantry at NYSUT Headquarters. Volunteers distributed more than eight tons of food to individuals and families from surrounding communities. Share your local holiday efforts on social media and tag #NYSUTcares and @nysut.
