Jerry Jordan to PFT Members: This year's budget is a "woefully inadequate failure."

6-26-21

This afternoon, PFT President Jerry Jordan shared the following with PFT members:


Dear PFT Members,

Our fight for fair and equitable education funding continues. And this year's budget, finished by the State Legislature last evening, did very little to get us there. It was a woefully inadequate budget that, amidst a $10B surplus in the state's coffers, passed up this potentially once in a lifetime opportunity to make serious investment in public education.

Re: OPPOSITION TO SCHOOL CODE (SB381)

 

The PFT is deeply disappointed and concerned about the myriad failures in the current school code bill (SB381 A02135). This bill is, quite simply, shameful. 

 

It’s shameful in what it does, and it is shameful in what it does not do.

Re: OPPOSITION TO SB1; Position on Amendments 

 


The PFT remains in opposition to SB1. 

No introduced amendment changes our position. However, there are many amendments that are worthy of consideration as standalone bills, and we have provided an overview of our positions below.
