Community Alliance For Public Education

All Out for May 1! When teachers march like they did last May and will do this May, they go on behalf of students, schools, other educators, communities, and for those who help lead our school systems.

Here are the five core issues for May 1st in Raleigh.

1. Provide enough school librarians, psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses, and other health professionals to meet national professional-to-student standards;

2. Provide $15 minimum wage for all school personnel, 5% raise for all ESPs (non-certified staff), teachers, administrators, and a 5% cost of living adjustment for retirees;

3. Expand Medicaid to improve the health of our students and families;

4. Reinstate state retiree health benefits eliminated by the General Assembly in 2017;

5. Restore advanced degree compensation stripped by the General Assembly in 2013.
