POSITION ON STUDENTS
Please contact ST CAUCUS with questions on our position.
Our working conditions are our students’ learning conditions. Under ST Caucus leadership, NYSUT’s advocacy will be centered on alleviating classrooms of the burden of poorly thought-out curriculum and assessments designed to demoralize and mislabel students as not ready for college and career. Under our leadership, whether it is abusive testing, lack of funding, flawed learning standards, harmful education policy, corporate reform, or existential federal threats, under our leadership, NYSUT will always advocate for what is in the best interest of our students. NYSUT will push for a tangible shift from the state’s focus on ranking and sorting students based on test scores to a focus on research-based best practices that will enable all of our students to learn and to meet what their future demands.
