Our mission is to empower educators to advocate for professional rights, responsibilities and practices to achieve educational excellence within a changing society.
Day Without Hate
In light of recent events and being sensitive to upcoming anniversaries, I would like to, as the president of JCEA, ask everyone to be mindful and respectful of the meaning of acceptance and tolerance.
I hope you will join us this week, especially on Friday, April 24, and celebrate acceptance and tolerance in the "Day Without Hate" celebrations happening throughout the district. More information about "Day Without Hate" and how you can participate can be found here: http://www.daywithouthate.org/
Board Report - Brad Miller's Assault on the Thompson EA
Last night’s BoE retreat was mostly a waste of time. Several speakers presented ideas about innovation in education. The highlight was a presentation from several JeffCo schools that are currently using innovative practices in educating their students. Meanwhile, in Thompson, Brad Miller’s other anti-teacher Board Majority was moving full-steam ahead to dismantle the Thompson Education Association.
The JCEA and Jeffco Schools bargaining teams met Monday, April 13, and Wednesday, April 15. The small working groups that had been meeting to generate options reported out to the larger group.
