As a result, NYSUT is sponsoring what we hope will be a massive rally in Albany on June 8 in support of public education. The logistics are as follows: The rally is planned for noon, ending at around 2 pm. GNTA, in cooperation with NYSUT, has chartered a coach bus for the day, which will leave at 7:30 am from the South High School parking lot, returning some time around 6 pm. Attendees should bring lunch, snacks, etc. All GNTA members who attend will receive our first-ever GNTA t-shirt! Spouses and children are welcome.
I've been in all of your buildings, and I've heard your concerns regarding budget cuts, APPR, and testing. It's not enough to tell me; you have to tell the governor...your legislators...the Regents. They're the ones who have control over these issues. While I'm not always a fan of rallies, in some cases the time is right for gathering to raise one united voice. Think March on Washington...Million Mom March...the recent gatherings in Hartford that helped push the Connecticut legislature into passing ground-breaking gun control measures. The time for this is RIGHT.
To reserve your seat on the bus, please call Rosemary Cook at the Cottage, 829-9070. I hope to see you there!
