This week our teachers and students returned to school to shape the future of West Virginia. First and foremost, we wish the best of luck to our teachers and students as they begin a new school year. We always have and always will stand up for education as we support our teachers, students, staff, and service personnel.
We also want to take a moment to say thank you and hear from you.
Are you heading back to school as an educator or support staff? Do you have a story about how the Republican controlled legislature’s decisions to ignore PEIA and take pay raises off the table during budget negotiations have affected you? Share them with us by emailing StandUpSummer@WVDemocrats.com.
West Virginia Democrats stand up for West Virginia teachers. We believe in empowering our teachers and unleashing their talent and abilities in the classroom. We believe in increasing teacher’s pay so that we remain competitive, attracting and retaining the very best educators. And we believe in investing in our schools and our students so that West Virginian children have access to the same bright future as any other child in America.
