Social Justice In Education - A Q&A on 10/9

I work towards social justice for all school employees through my union. How can we work with our local school division to create a more equitable work environment (more quickly than legislation)?

I’m glad you brought that up. In many schools the teachers who have obtained credentials are from higher income families, more often white. The support staff, which was not able to get a credential, are often the people who do the emotional labor of supporting students who have been filled in their classrooms. The support staff supports us teachers when we go on strike, But what do we do for them? I believe our unions and our faculty need to respect and elevate the profile and rights of all school employees.
