PSEA is a community of education professionals who make a difference in the lives of students every day.
Emily Nell came back to teach art and make an impact after spending 14 years as an independent artist working in schools and holding benefit auctions.
Pennsylvania’s public schools should be the safest and healthiest places for students to learn and grow.
PSEA is committed to making changes aimed at protecting everyone who works and learns in our schools.
School boards play a major role in the lives of educators.
They have the final say on budgets, contracts, personnel, curriculum, and many other issues.
School board seats are on the ballot this election year, and with cross-filing – candidates can file nominating petitions to appear on both Democratic and Republican ballots – many races are essentially decided in the primary election. A candidate can win both parties’ nominations, which means they can only be defeated in the general election by a write-in candidate.
“There is no such thing as so-called off-year elections,’’ said PSEA Treasurer Jeff Ney. “All elections have consequences, and that is particularly so for public school educators when it comes to school board seats. It is vitally important that pro-public education candidates be elected to these positions.’’
