Fund Our Future Petition Drive

teachers celebrating passing fund our future resolution

Our students can’t wait!  

The MTA and our coalition partners have created the Fund Our Future campaign because all students, no matter where they live, deserve access to a quality public education from preschool through college.

We will file a Fund Our Future bill in January that will increase public education spending by more than $1.5 billion a year by updating the foundation budget formula for public schools (adding more than $1 billion) and bringing public higher education funding levels back to where they were in 2001 (adding more than $500 million).

To raise awareness about this campaign and show support for it across the state, the MTA is asking members to distribute and sign petitions endorsing the Fund Our Future legislation between now and January 15. Here’s what we need you to do.

You don’t have petitions but you want them. What should you do?

  1. Call your MTA field representative or local president for petition copies.
  2. Call the MTA Grassroots Campaigns Division at (617) 878-8194 and ask for Eric Smith. Let him know what you need.
  3. Download and print petition forms.

You’ve got petitions to sign. Now what?

  1. Get signatures of supportive MTA members in your local. Ask them to sign neatly.
  2. Return the petitions to your MTA field rep or MTA regional office by January 15.
