Watch TV news coverage of last Monday’s DFT picket against House Bills 6576 - 79, at http://www.youtube.com/dftmembers.  The legislation was introduced November 17 by State Rep Durhal and Robert Bobb. It would eliminate class size caps and seniority, but only in those school districts in a financial deficit. The DFT voted to sponsor the picket at its November membership meeting. We need to elect a union leadership that will build these actions, not oppose them (as Keith Johnson did), or ignore them (as other slates did). That is the only way to win the fight to defend public education! Vote for the Defend Public Education / Save Our Students slate !! Because ballots arrived at the schools so late, many schools will still be voting this week. But ballots must be at the post office box of the DFT Election Committee by Saturday 8 am, or they will not be counted. Please contact us if you have not had a chance to vote.
