The following update has been issued by the AFT CT.
The Education Committee is expected to JF (pass) a version of SB 24 on Monday, March 26. AFT CT does not yet know what this version will look like. The most important thing you can do is call and e-mail your legislators and members of the Education Committee and urge them to make three key changes to the bill: (1) add AFT & CEA’s teacher evaluation and dismissal language: (2) remove the link between teacher evaluation and certification; and (3) remove limits on collective bargaining. You can e-mail Education Committee members here: http://action.aft.org/c/340/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=3870.
