Demand DC Fully Funds Our Schools:
Rally, Thur., April 25th 4pm Freedom Plaza … Sign the Petition!

Demand that the DC Council amend the proposed FY 2020 DCPS budget to fully fund our schools. If the proposed budget is not amended, our schools could lose millions of dollars.

Thursday, April 25, at 4:00PM, educators, parents, students, and community leaders will hold a rally on Freedom Plaza (across the street from the Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.) to tell the DC Council: Fund Our Schools! Fund Our Future!


One of the speakers at the rally will be Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), which is leading a nationwide campaign to protect public education from efforts to defund our schools.

Meanwhile, sign the petition demanding that the DC Council fully fund DC schools.

SY 2018-19: Year of Vital Decisions 

Dear DCPS Educator,

Welcome back to DCPS for the School Year 2018-19! The Washington Teachers’ Union will do everything possible to help assure that this coming year will be fulfilling and productive for you, and that we will all get closer to our goal of delivering to each and every one of our students an excellent education.

After teaching in DCPS for 44 years, I am convinced that excellence in education – and fairness in working conditions for teachers – is best achieved when the voice of educators is heard in the development and implementation of educational policies and programs. Under the DCPS-WTU contract, administrators must afford the WTU and its members the status of “full and equal partners” in addressing issues that impact our schools.

Over the years I’ve observed that the voice of teachers is most effectively heard when the WTU is strong and members work together.
