PSEA is a community of education professionals who make a difference in the lives of students every day.
Phoenixville EA member John Odell is in his second successful career after 24 years with the Army.
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.
PSEA’s Education Services Division has posted advisories pertaining to Pennsylvania’s plan under the Every Student Succeeds Act at www.psea.org/essa.
Implementation of the state’s plan will begin in the 2018-19 school year. It was approved by the U.S. Department of Education in January. Key components of the plan include accountability systems and indicators, support for schools in need of improvement, initiatives to support all students, and programs and activities to strengthen the educator workforce.
The advisories explain these key components and also provide an overview of ESSA as the successor of No Child Left Behind.
