TELL YOUR STORY: A Petition to Local and State Officials in Support of Higher Pay and School Funding
Share |

We at Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana know that Louisiana teachers, schools, and students are in great need of further financial support, so in 2018, A+PEL is stepping up as the first organization with a direct action to support higher pay for teachers, improved school funding, and great resources for our students.

We’ve already met with several state leaders about our concerns for all Louisiana educators and making sure that those of you in the classroom are being paid fair and adequate wages. We are exploring methods by which increased funding can be achieved with the BEST results for teachers. We’re having a Teacher Pay Initiative meeting at our Annual Summer Conference, with multiple meetings around the state throughout the fall. The goal of these meetings is to find ways of getting more money in your pockets and your classroom.

For those of you who can’t join us for an in-person meeting. we still want to hear your voice. Your membership in A+PEL supports effective, positive, and professional advocacy. With over 40 years of NON-PARTISAN advocacy, we are the organization able to get the best results for all teachers and educators in Louisiana. So please, participate in our advocacy.

Let your voice be heard! Whether it’s the number of years we’ve gone without a raise, the amount of materials you’ve had to purchase for your classroom, or the amount of after-hours work you’ve had to do during the week, let your voice be heard! With your participation, A+PEL will be able to directly share your story with key local and state leaders. This will allow us to directly demonstrate the need for increased funding and support for educators and classrooms.

(On a personal note, you deserve a SIGNIFICANT RAISE for teachers; not one that will be ultimately ruined by tax increases. If there is money available in the system, we will research it, find it, and get it to you!)


Sincerely,

Dr. Keith Courville
