Timely Tidbits from Janet and Marianne
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think constructively.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.”
This has been a busy year for us at STC and we are grateful for the support we have received. This is the time of the year when we especially need your help. Once again, the Governor’s budget does NOT include Teacher Centers. So, we are asking each of you to please contact the Governor and your Legislators and request that Teacher Centers not only be included in the state budget, but also that Teacher Centers be restored to at least the 2008-2009 level of $40 million.
You can send faxes by going to STC Facebook and the NYSUT website:
https:/mac.nysut.org. We will also be sending out the link in an email.
Enjoy Spring!!! (when it gets here)
