Principles and Vision

EDU’s Principles:

  1. To thrive our democracy requires public, not corporate, education
  2. Respect and support teachers and education workers
  3. Poverty undermines the education of our children
  4. Educate the whole child, don’t teach to the test
  5. Race, immigration status, and sexual preference should not be barriers to education
  6. Free, high-quality public higher education for all
  7. Defend the contributions of unions, including collective bargaining
  8. Build a proactive, “bottom-up” and “inside-out” union with a long-range vision
  9. Concessions of hard won rights and benefits must be a last resort, not a starting point
