Fellow teachers, we are all acutely aware how much of a role the political landscape plays in schools. I don’t have to tell you how adequate funding and support from the state government – from governors to senators to legislators – is essential to each and every thing that we do for students. For this reason, I encourage you to VOTE in tomorrow’s primary elections.
While tomorrow’s elections are only the primaries, in many cases election results are in large decided tomorrow due to lack of opposition. For example, my district’s senate primary winner claims the seat in the state government. For this reason, I encourage you to VOTE tomorrow.
Plain and simple, do yourself, your fellow teacher, your school and most importantly your students a favor with the act of voting tomorrow.
