PA’s minimum teacher salary ($18,500) hasn’t increased since 1988. PA's minimum wage ($7.25), hasn’t been raised since 2009, and is lower than all neighboring states.
PSEA is committed to making changes aimed at protecting everyone who works and learns in our schools.

As part of ESPs’ commitment to supporting the needs of the “whole child,’’ a statewide initiative to collect summer supplies for K-5 students in the Chambersburg Area School District turned out to be a great success.
Items ranging from healthy snacks and drinks to books to games to sand buckets were donated by ESP members at division meetings throughout the state in recent months and at April’s ESP House of Delegates and Workshop.
As part of their day-to-day work in public schools, ESP members play an important role in meeting the needs of the “whole child.’’
Dawn Bandle, PSEA ESP Region president, noted that role extends beyond the classroom.
“The ‘whole child’ has health, safety and personal needs all the time,’’ said Dawn Bandle, PSEA ESP Region president. “The supply drive for K-5 students in Chambersburg is already a great success. I’m extremely proud of our ESP members.’’
