Trump's budget takes a meat cleaver to public education

The 2018 budget proposal "takes a meat cleaver to public education" and ignores promised investments in the types of skills, training and other vital family supports that Trump rode to the White House in 2016, AFT President Randi Weingarten says.


AFT resources for undocumented students

Dear Brothers & Sisters:

As promised, please see the attached AFT resources for undocumented students and campus support. Again, share and use as you see fit to help our undocumented sisters and brothers.  Thank you. 


Free Professional Development Opportunity!

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

 NTU members through our affiliation with the American Federation of Teachers can receive free professional development credits by attending our Professional Learning Showcase.  Take Saturday, February 25th  off and let your spouse handle the kids and chores. Organize a car pool with colleagues and make a day of it.  It ends at 3:30 so you still have the rest of the day—go shopping, get a massage.


Huge Legal Victories!


The NTU and our community and legal partners continue to rack up major legal victories against the State in their battle to devalue educators and destroy public education:

1) The NJ Supreme Court has denied the state’s latest petition to freeze education funding and to grant the Commissioner of Education authority to override teachers contracts. Summarily, the bogus lawsuit claiming tenure and Newark teachers are an impediment to student learning has been dismissed and declared moot.
