It’s a fact of life that politics have a major impact on our children, our schools and our profession. Clearly, if we are to be heard, it’s going to take more than a few lobbyists and a handful of interested members. It’s going to take your voice, your effort, and your investment in our children’s future and the future of public education. A 28 cents-a-day contribution to OEA-PIE will unite you with thousands of other OEA members through OEA-PIE. Together we can make the difference for your children, your students, and public education.
Your investment will:
- Support recommended candidates and issues that are critical to children and public education.
- Work for adequate and stable school funding.
- Give you a voice in the future of education.
- Allow you active involvement in education decision making.
