“More than anything, people just want to feel like they’re respected… If people felt more respected, they might have more sympathy for the district’s ongoing financial difficulties.” –Cheyne Cumming, teacher and PAT organizer

Approximately 1,500 teachers and their supporters took to the streets and marched on the school board Monday night to demand a contract. This Week in PPS, we hear from Portland Association of Teachers president Rebecca Levison, as well as organizer Cheyne Cumming.

Steve Rawley published PPS Equity from 2008 to 2010, when he moved his family out of the district.

  1. Comment from Paul D:

    It is great to see Portland teachers being so active in the face of these attacks.These attacks are going on around the country.
    As Lee Sustar points out in this article 40,000 teachers have been laid off around the country. In Washington DC 388 high-seniority teachers were laid off while keeping on newly hired teachers.Washington D.C show the same disregard for teachers as PPS.
    Keep up the fight teachers, others around the country are looking at what happens here.
