OUR STUDENTS,
OUR SCHOOLS,
OUR PROFESSION

OUR STORY

We – teachers, counselors, psychologists, and parents – of Alliance Schools are coming together because we want to ensure the highest quality of education at Alliance. We love our schools and students, and believe that small class sizes, teacher and counselor recruitment and retention, health and safety, and a commitment to social, emotional and educational support for students will help build the schools Alliance students need and deserve.

Alliance can do better. Teachers have overwhelmingly voted to unionize to make improvements, but for 4 years Alliance has refused to respect educators’ decisions. Teachers have gone to Alliance Board meetings, sent letters and petitions, and held rallies, but the Alliance Board of Directors, to date, have done all they could to deny teachers a collective voice and repeatedly ignored legal orders to negotiate with educators, denying our rights under the law.

Parents have seen first-hand that teachers’ working conditions are their kids’ learning conditions, and when educators have a voice on the job and a say in how their school works, they fight for – and can win – real improvements in their children’s’ education, and protections for health and safety.

Instead of trying to silence our voices, Alliance should listen to its parents and educators.
