Time Magazine must apologize to teachers !
As you know by now, TIME magazine's Nov. 3 cover, online this week, seems geared toward creating controversy by claiming that it is impossible to fire teachers. This cover is irresponsible, designed to sell magazines and not intended to foster serious discussion about solutions to improve schools.
I urge you to sign this online petition from the AFT. It tells TIME's editors to apologize for blaming teachers in order to boost sales. There are serious challenges facing our schools, and here's your chance to tell TIME that blaming teachers won't solve anything.
President Randi Weingarten plans to deliver the petitions next week in New York.
NYSUT Voter Guide
We are pleased to provide you with this Voter Guide, so YOU can decide on Nov. 4. This year, the stakes are extremely high. You have the power to help create a government that supports public education pre-K through post-grad, supports educators and their due process rights, supports unfettered access to health care, protects the right to retire with dignity and financial security, and supports labor rights across all of our constituencies.

Show your respect on SRP Recognition Day, Nov. 18
There's no excuse! Respect your school-related professionals -- the teaching assistants, teacher aides, monitors, secretaries, food service workers, custodians, security guards, drivers, mechanics and all who make our schools run.
SRP Recognition Day is Nov. 18, 2014.
To help locals celebrate, NYSUT has available celebration packets that include "SRPs Make a Difference" buttons, a suggestion guide, a poster and fliers available to leaders.
Register at www.nysut.org/eReg/SRD14 to let us know how many buttons you will need. Order by Nov. 1 to guarantee delivery by Nov. 18.
Let us know the details of your plans and share your pictures and stories in our contest. For questions, contact SRP Coordinator Margaret MacCartney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
