Join millions of voices fighting for our nation's public school students and educators.


DID YOU KNOW?


1out of5 educators must take another job to make ends meet.

71% of people think teachers are not paid enough.

16% less funding goes to districts with the highest poverty.

WHAT IS RED FOR ED?

When we think about the promise of education today, we see the future leaders of our nation and the qualified educators who reach, teach and inspire them. We see classrooms with modern tools that help students prepare to make an impact on the world. We see students getting the support they need to thrive and educators having the support they need to serve.

We see progress and hope.

But today we also see budgets being cut, overcrowded classrooms and outdated materials. We see educators working around the clock to make a difference in the lives of their students and standing up to lawmakers to ask for better pay and school funding. We're raising our voices together for our students, for our schools and for ourselves as educators.

That's why we’re wearing Red for Ed.






Make your Presidents Day count and show up for students.

Join educators in Salem to march for education funding on February 18th.

Huge class sizes and caseloads. Room clears. Missing support staff.

Our students deserve better.

It’s time to show our lawmakers that our schools need funding now.

Let’s march to tell them our students can’t wait.​
