A Rousing Finish to Opening Night


VEA President Jim Livingston brought delegates to their feet at the close of night one with a rousing address built around the future of our union and three words: Solidarity, Vision, and Power. He challenged members to have each other's backs, work forcefully for great public schools for every child, and not to fear embracing our power, calling for educators to make their presence felt at the polls in November and let legislators know that to underfund our schools is to put their positions at risk.
