Demand Teachers Be Paid Their Worth

Target: Katy Anthes, State of Colorado’s Commissioner of Education

Goal: Meet the demands of teachers striking for a better living wage and classroom environment.

Teacher revolutions are happening all over the country, and Colorado is currently next in line. Educators everywhere are going on strike to protest unfair working conditions. Educators are notoriously underpaid and overworked, and those in Colorado have decided they are fed up. The Colorado Education Association is fighting for a better treatment of the state’s teachers, demanding pay raises, more job security, and for teachers to no longer have to pay out of pocket for school supplies.

States everywhere are beginning to see the value in striking to achieve their goals, as West Virginia teachers were just awarded a pay raise after nine days of strikes. If more states took the lead of Colorado and West Virginia, we could begin to see some effective change within the education system. Sign this petition below to demand that teachers begin to be paid their worth.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Anthes,

Teachers are fed up. The time has come to listen to the grievances of our nation’s educators, as they are the ones leading the next generation. If we do not treat our teachers with respect, then our future generations will not be suited to enter adulthood.

The Colorado teachers on strike have a clear message, and the Board of Education needs to listen. Stand with us on the right side of history and be on the frontier of paying our teachers what they are worth, and not a penny less.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    They do important work and should be compensated accordingly. Corporate CEO’s earn 100 times more than average workers and yet they only achieve a fraction of the importance teacher’s have.

  3. Jaime Perez says:

    Teachers make all occupations possible! They deserve better wages.

  4. Teachers not only educate but often fill in where parents fail.
    Thus I do support and better wages for all teachers!
