Solidarity Statement with Seattle Teachers
Adopted by the Executive Board of the Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association
The Milwaukee Teachers’ Education Association stands in solidarity with the teachers of Garfield High School in Seattle in their boycott of the MAP tests.
We believe that the actions by the courageous Seattle teachers will spark a long overdue national debate on these issues. If parents, educators, students and community members work together, such a debate can lead to positive action that will result in improvements in quality and equity for students in our nation’s public schools.
