Who we are and what we stand for

  • We insist on a better educational environment for teachers and for the students whose lives we touch. We have established the MORE Caucus, which will educate, organize and mobilize the UFT membership.
  • We seek a contract with retroactive pay that is not obtained by selling off what few protections remain. MORE will defend: tenure, due process rights, pensions, and an immediate end to the arbitrary denial of tenure. We oppose any teacher evaluations based on standardized tests.
  • We insist that high stakes tests no longer deprive New York City’s children of exposure to foreign language, science, social studies and the arts. We insist that curricula taught in our schools nurture in students the potential for active, reflective citizenship, and is committed to racial and gender equity, democracy and economic justice.
  • Schools should reflect the aspirations and diversity of those who make up its parent and student body.
