January 23, 2019- Welcome back Fremont! United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA), Mayor Eric Garcetti, and Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) made progress on the teachers' contract negotiations. Over 30,000 teachers voted on Tuesday evening to agree to the contract negotiations returning 600,000 students back to class. The agreed upon teacher's contract will bring needed change to Americas second largest school district, LAUSD. Students will benefit from smaller classroom
populations, an increase in the number of per-school site counselors, nurses,
librarians, and other crucial resources.
Particularly, in the case of smaller classroom populations, parents can look forward to potentially greater control of teacher grading work loads and increase in teacher to student lesson differentiation, which may aid in possible student success rates on test scores.
With better supported teachers, gaining their needed raise to keep up with the ever growing price of living, teachers are ensured healthier living as they contribute a percentage of their own income to the classroom annually -see Maria Danilova, The Associated Press Published 8:08 a.m. ET May 15, 2018 | Updated 1:04 p.m. ET May 15, 2018 (USA Today, 2018). Many teachers expressed that the contract is not a permanent fix, yet a starting point toward continuing to improve our public school system here in the County of Los Angeles.
