The #RedforEd movement and Virginia Educators United are about uniting Virginians to demand fully funded
K-12 public education.
VIRGINIA'S TIME IS NOW!
After a decade of budget cuts, Virginia’s schools have reached their breaking point. Our General Assembly has abandoned their constitutional duty to fund our education system for too long, and as supporters of public education, we are not taking it anymore. We refuse to permit our kids to go to schools where the buildings are collapsing, where teachers are overworked and under compensated, and where there are fewer and fewer resources every year.
On January 28th, 2019, Virginia Educators United, statewide advocacy groups, and various teacher organizations marched on the Capitol in Richmond and demanded that our legislators stop short-changing our students. Though this day of solidarity gained modest funding, there is still much to be done to correct years of neglect and underfunding. As a new legislature takes office in 2020 sending a clear message to every member of the General Assembly that Virginia must fulfill its constitutional responsibility and make public schools the number one priority of our legislature.
In order for us to achieve that goal, we need every county, city, and town to organize and create a true statewide RedforEd movement. We need every PTA, community organization and religious institution to join us. We need every student, parent, community member, and stakeholder to stand together and demand better for our students, our communities, and our educators.
