Our schools are under assault by corporate reform efforts, standardized testing, and a governor who is eager to fire teachers and close schools. As working and learning conditions deteriorate, our union leadership has neither put up an effective resistance nor been a force for change for better schools.
The Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE) invites all UFT members, parents, students, and friends to help develop a strategy to create a more democratic and more proactive UFT that can be a force for change in education in New York City.
Let’s use this year’s upcoming union elections to transform the UFT by bringing together our voices, finding common ground, and increasing our participation from the chapter level up.
Unlike the UFT leadership, MORE is asking your input for shaping our union’s program! The workshops at this conference will help define the language of our election platform.
