This Year Has to be Different

President’s Message, by Megan Tuttle, NEA-New Hampshire President As the school year begins, I cannot help feeling that this year is very different.  The events of this summer have brought headlines about violence, race, justice and equality back into our daily life.  We shudder as we witness the violence, the hate that produced it, and the official response from our government that only serves to legitimize it. Our role as educators has always been important.  But this year seems different.  Our ever-connected students face the news and images of bigotry and hate constantly.  This year we cannot believe our annual preparations are complete if they only contain new supplies and updated curriculum plans.  This year, we must ask ourselves what we are going to do to help. The NEA-NH building in

This Labor Day, and Every Day, Unions Fight for Real Freedoms for Working People

Unions are critically important in giving educators a voice that allows them to advocate to ensure every student has the opportunity to receive a good education that inspires natural curiosity and a desire to learn. Educators negotiate to keep class sizes down so children have one-on-one attentions and modern tools to learn. If corporations and politicians eliminate our freedom to form unions, they’ll continue to drive down wages, kill jobs, defund our public schools and services, silence working people at the ballot box, and cripple the fundamental values of freedom and opportunity we hold dear as Americans. We know the truth: When the freedom to join together in unions is secure, other freedoms are likely to be too. Like the freedom to attend a parent-teacher conference or to take off
