More about MORE:
MORE, the social justice caucus of the UFT, is building a movement, and we need your support.  This fall, we’re focused on petitioning for a moratorium to end the hastily created, inaccurate NYC teacher evaluation plan, based on faulty data from high-stakes standardized tests that we believe undermine the quality of our childrens’ education.  To read our mission statement, and the need for a democracy within the teacher’s union, click here.
