A plea to you all. Amy Swain's race against Jeff Ellington is considered one of the closest ones in the state. If we are going to help public education, we must have different policymakers! People who will advocate for public schools.

Could you grab a friend and go to this canvass on this beautiful Saturday? Check out the event and reach out to a friend. Think of those teachers that walked out in a sea of Wear Red for Ed tshirts across the country. Could you all get people here?

Monroe County Education Association (MCEA) is located in Bloomington, IN and its members are teachers from Monroe County Community School Corporation.

Encourage lawmakers and governor to keep listening to educators | Indiana State Teachers Association

Encourage lawmakers and governor to keep listening to educators | Indiana State Teachers Association The Indiana State Teachers Association (ISTA) is the voice of public education and educators in Indiana.

[04/22/21]   We as the MCCSC building Association Representatives, of the Monroe County Education Association, unanimously approve the following motion:

Motion: In order to support high quality education for students of all ages and abilities, MCEA will advocate against teachers teaching simultaneously, online and in-person. In order to support this advocacy, the association will circulate materials encouraging members to attend the school board meeting, speak at the school board meeting, or post on social media in support.

If you support high quality education for students of all ages and abilities, we encourage you to let your voice be heard by joining us at the April 27th school board meeting. You are welcome to write letters to the school board or speak during the public comment time and join us before the school board meeting in support of our students and teachers. All students deserve the full attention of their instructor. Educators who are forced to simultaneously instruct their students, face to face and online, can not give their students the attention they deserve and need.

More details will be coming about how you can support this effort.
