Listen to the UFT’s new radio ad.
The text is as follows:
Now that the president has signed the new federal stimulus bill, let’s take a moment to thank the New York congressional delegation, the mayor and the thousands of educators who lobbied for its passage. But let’s take only a moment. Because for those of us who are pushing for high quality public schools in New York City, there’s a lot of hard work still to be done. Now we must keep a watchful eye on how the stimulus funds are used. This once in a lifetime opportunity cannot be wasted on bureaucracy. The additional funds must go straight to the classroom to help our teachers provide their students with the quality education they deserve. We must also fight in Albany and at City Hall against any erosion of our children’s educational opportunities.
Join us on Thursday, March 5, at 4 p.m. for a rally at City Hall, and make your voice heard in support of our schools and our children. Go to www.uft.org for more information.
