RESTORE FUNDING FOR TEACHER RESOURCE & COMPUTER TRAINING CENTERS

Have you noticed that the politicians who talk the most about education quality and student achievement seem to actually value them the least?

Teacher centers are critical to educators' professional development, improving the quality of education in the classroom, and - as a result - the success of our students. Yet in just the last few years, lawmakers have slashed state funding of teacher centers by half. And in the Governor's budget, funding was completely eliminated! This has been happening at a time when Albany's self-righteous calls for more teacher accountability have become almost deafening.

Take action now at the NYSUT Member Action Center to help restore funding for Teacher Resource and Computer Training Centers!

The bottom line is that teacher centers work. They improve student achievement and teacher quality, help eliminate the achievement gap, and are key to the successful implementation of Race to the Top.

Please help rescue funding for these important education resources!
