We’re asking all members and supporters to wear red to show our outrage over the Governor’s order
Well before the Governor decided to insert himself into the process, many school districts had developed plans and were on track to return to full-time classes by early May.
Those plans were created with the input of educators, administrators, parents and health officials to address the unique needs of each school and bring students back AS QUICKLY AND AS SAFELY AS POSSIBLE.
This has always been our goal.
To call attention to the unnecessary chaos and complete lack of regard for local control and the safety of those who work and learn in public schools, we are calling on all members and supporters to wear Red for Ed on Thursday, April 8.
Red for Ed is our visible and collective effort to stand in solidarity with each other and to let the Governor know we will not be silent when he oversteps his authority and puts us and our students in danger.
We invite you, your family, and all those who work in your school to make a statement TOMORROW by wearing red.
We’re also asking you to post pictures of you and your team in your RedForED colors on social media using#RedForED and #NHPolitics.
New Hampshire’s educators are among the most vital, hardest-working, passionate and selfless members of the work force — yet we continue to be among the most disrespected, underappreciated, overworked and underpaid.
We believe, now more than ever, that Governor Sununu has done nothing to improve this situation and has, in fact, worked to ensure that these perceptions continue.
You have gone above and beyond this past year to serve your students. You are the reason our students have had continued education, support, and nutrition during the pandemic. Please know your unwavering dedication to your students has not gone unnoticed.
