Massachusetts Teachers! Do you teach in Barnstable, Brockton, Cambridge, Chelsea, Chicopee, Everett, Fall River, Fitchburg, Haverhill, Holyoke, Lawrence, Leominster, Lowell, Lynn, Malden, Methuen, New Bedford, Pittsfield, Quincy, Revere, Salem, Somerville, Springfield, Taunton, Westfield, or Worcester? Do you know anyone who does?
What do you believe is needed to close the achievement gap in your schools, particularly those in low- and moderate-income communities?
The Massachusetts Teachers Association is working with VIVA “to foster an online discussion about this subject among teachers and other instructional professionals.” “Too often, people with little or no experience in teaching are making the major policy decisions that affect how and what we teach,” said MTA President Paul Toner. “We believe teachers should continually be asked what they believe is needed and our voices should carry the most weight.”
