  • WEA COVID-19 & 2020-21 Blog

    Since the beginning of the pandemic, WEA and your local have been committed to fighting for these four things:

    Protecting your health and well-being, and that of your families, students and our communities;

    Taking meaningful action to connect with students who were hard to reach with last year's distance learning, especially students of color, low-income populations, immigrants and English learners, special education, homeless students and foster youth;

    Putting racial equity and social justice at the center of all policy and budget decisions that affect our students and public schools, and

    Ensuring our schools are fully funded and staffed to meet students' needs. No matter what school looks like this fall, we know we need more nurses, custodians, instructional assistants, social workers and mental health professionals — and they must have the resources they need to support our students.
