CAUCUS OF TODAY’S TEACHERS PLATFORM

WE BELIEVE THAT...

  • Open, transparent communication between members and elected leadership benefits everyone, elevates member voice, and ensures participation by all members

  • Democratic decision making is a best practice in schools and in the association

  • Educators are professionals and that educators’ time and expertise are valuable

 

WE WILL...

  • Advocate for anti-racist policies and social justice in our schools and society for and with students, parents, community - not just for educators

  • Build and maintain partnerships with parents, community members, and other stakeholder groups

  • Defend true public education and fight for comprehensive community schools and against privatization

  • Inform members and the public about local, state, and national education research and news that impacts Denver and beyond
     

WE ARE COMMITTED TO A STRONG ASSOCIATION BECAUSE...

  • School choice has had drastic effects - Our association should be a model for others because of Denver’s experiences with school choice

  • Students are the reason we’re in this profession - Students’ well-being should be placed first in everything we say and do

  • A strong contract ensures an excellent education for students - Students’ learning environments are educators’ working environments  

  • Supporting teachers is supporting students - When educators are supported, they are able to serve students better.
