Fighting for Every Student, Every School, Every Day

The tragic events of this past weekend in Charlottesville, VA., which took the lives of a young woman who fought for social justice and equality and two law enforcement officers shook us to our very core. It had a profound impact on our nation as a whole. Whether what happened in Charlottesville came as a shock or an all-too-familiar reminder about life in the United States, we must take action to come together. We must condemn hatred and bigotry and not let the actions of some misguided individuals tear us apart.


Though it is painful to face, violence related to racism and bigotry continues to be woven into the fabric of our nation. The first step in combating the violence and hate is education. A good place to see how our nation got to this point can be found in “Stamped from the Beginning”, an award-winning book by historian Ibram X. Kendi, who will join us in October at the FEA Delegate Assembly. This book was just released in paperback and in shedding much needed light on the history of racist ideas, “Stamped from the Beginning” offers us the tools we need to expose them and in the process, gives us reason to hope.

FEA: HB 7069 another bad school law

TALLAHASSEE – Florida Education Association (FEA) President Joanne McCall expressed her disappointment today that Gov. Rick Scott signed House Bill 7069 into law, saying that it’s the latest in a line of bad legislation designed to undermine Florida’s public schools.

“The implementation of HB 7069 will do harm to our schools and to our most vulnerable students,” McCall said. “Blindly jumping into this so-called ‘fundamental transformation’ of how we educate our children is based almost entirely on ideology.  At best this is malpractice. This is no way to build a high quality public education system.” Click here to read more.
