Whatever your feelings about the Common Core State Standards, our state representative's Facebook comment on the topic definitely reveals his feelings about teachers and SVEA. Take a look...
Rep. Magendanz also asked 5th District constituents to email him about what to fund in our schools.
However, materials, class size, and teacher salaries are all basic needs. Pitting one necessity against another is no way for our Legislature to function. Our Supreme Court ruled that the Legislature must follow through with its constitutional duty to fully fund education - including teacher salaries.
Please email Rep. Magendanz and tell him not to pick and choose which elements of our public schools to fund. Our kids deserve sufficient materials, small class sizes, and fairly compensated teachers.
