Musicians support UTLA teachers!

Statement in Support of UTLA from AFM Local 47

The teachers of LAUSD are fighting for the schools our students deserve. They want to lower class sizes across all grades. They need more resources in our classrooms and to improve school safety. They want to have more instructional time and fewer standardized tests.

But the DISTRICT is saying NO to all of these demands.

Our teachers alone cannot bring about a better future for our kids. If an agreement is not reached, UTLA teachers are prepared to strike January 14.
