Demand a Reform Contract for All Students!
Join "Don't Hold Us Back"
Tomorrow, November 1st, at LAUSD.
Tomorrow is an important day for all of us who care about public education in Los Angeles. We'll find out if LAUSD and UTLA have reached agreement on a new teacher contract with common sense reforms that benefit all students, not just some.
We know how busy you are, but we're asking you to help in a few ways:
– Attend our rally tomorrow at 9 am outside LAUSD headquarters. Let the board know that the community will no longer accept the status quo.
– Call your school board member to let him or her know that you want a reform contract for your child and every child.
– Ask your friends, family and colleagues to sign the pledge at www.dontholdusbackorg. We're almost at our goal of getting 1,000 pledges signed in 2 weeks.
Attached you'll see our newest L.A. Times ad, which is an open letter to LAUSD and UTLA.
Thank you again for your commitment to this effort. Whatever happens tomorrow, we will not rest until Los Angeles has a contract that truly serves all of its students.
