We need to get our priorities straight:
“Our kids and educators have been through enough hardship in the past year and don’t need the useless burden of weeks of test-prep and testing for scores that won’t be valid. Our leaders should be prioritizing educators for COVID-19 vaccine distribution. On that issue, though, Morath and Abbott are nowhere to be found.”.
— Zeph Capo, Texas AFT President
