POSTPONED: Weston Education Association Rally Town Green – January 23
Update: due to the expected weather this afternoon, the teacher rally scheduled for today has been postponed. When the Owl knows the new date and time, it will be posted here.
The Owl has received word that the Weston Public Schools’ teacher’s union, the Weston Education Association, will be holding a rally on Town Green today,
Monday, January 23 from 3:45 to 4:30 pm. The Owl’s main purpose in posting this information is to alert any drivers coming through the Intersection of Doom (Church/BPR/School) that there will be plenty of distractions. The permitted Owlet will not be attempting this intersection this afternoon.
A secondary reason for posting this is to encourage residents who have questions about the current situation, or the teachers’ perspectives on negotiations to stop by, bundled up in your best North Face jacket or coyote fur Canadian puffer, and ask questions. You may think you know what is going on, but it turns out you may not.
There is a site for WEA here with more information. There is also hope for a community information session in the near future.
Stay safe out there, teachers.
Thanks. The school budget has been eaten by inflation over the last 6 years. The 2023 budget will also be worth less than the 2016 budget after considering inflation. The cut in effective pay proposed for teachers after inflation accelerates this erosion in investment in our kids. Please urge the School Committee to defend school quality and maintain support in the face of inflation erosion.
Thanks for commenting, Alan. I just got word that the rally is postponed because of weather today.
