Massachusetts educators are teaching and working in preK-12 schools and college buildings that are cracked and crumbling due to a profound lack of maintenance and repairs. They are playing a key role in a fight to win federal funds, received through the American Rescue Plan Act, that could address these needs and others that are vital to helping students succeed. In recent months, MTA members have been powerful advocates not only for resources but also for other priorities that serve the common good. Coverage in this edition of MTA Today includes stories about union efforts to support student climate activism, Education Support Professionals in Shrewsbury and other communities rallying to draw attention to their need for a livable wage, the campaign to pass the Fair Share Amendment, the MTA Bargaining Summit, the Virtual Retired Members Gathering and the Early Career Educators Conference. Also featured is a commentary about the role that groups funded by the right wing but claiming to represent parents are playing in attacking public education.
