Yesterday we shared with you about PJSTA Live, a new initiative of ours to engage members of the PJSTA and broader public education and labor communities on the issues that are pertinent to the work that we do. Today I am excited to announce details of the broadcast’s first episode.
On Wednesday night we will be recording our first broadcast with the title being “Impact of the 2016 Election on Public Education”. After the recording is complete we will add it to our site here, so be sure to look for it. We will be discussing how the election of both Donald Trump and the down ballot state legislators will potentially impact our schools. We’ll also take a look at the major victory that Massachusetts public school teachers and advocates achieved and discuss what lessons those of us in New York State can take away from that situation.
For this initial broadcast I will be joined by three guests…
- Jeanette Deutermann- Long Island Opt-Out, NYSAPE
- Ali Gordon- Comsewogue School District Board of Education
- Merrie Najimy- President- Concord Teachers Association and member of the Educators for a Democratic Union Caucus- Massachusetts Teachers Association
