UFT United Federation of Teachers started this petition to Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council

For the first time in decades, we have the federal funding to make meaningful, lasting changes — for our schools and students. We have already accomplished much of our five-point recovery plan, but we still need the mayor and the City Council to earmark funding in the city budget for the most important pieces — smaller class sizes and intervention teams at every school

Your signature is all we need. Any donations will not go to the UFT or this cause.

School intervention teams:
The UFT’s award-winning Positive Learning Collaborative program has proven that embedding a support team of social workers, psychologists and academic intervention specialists in a school can dramatically improve student performance, decrease behavior issues and elevate teacher satisfaction. Please help us spread this proven model to every school in NYC — not just our at-risk schools.

Smaller class sizes:
We have always known that smaller class sizes mean more individualized attention, which leads to better outcomes. Help us finally reduce class sizes city-wide to a manageable number. Please help us prod the city to create a pilot program in the fall in 100 of our neediest schools with the goal to reduce class sizes in every school in NYC soon after.

Let’s come together as a union to demand our kids get what they deserve.

Sign this petition to tell the mayor and the City Council that #OurKidsNeed smaller class sizes and intervention teams at every school.

Please note: The way you can be most helpful is by signing and sharing this petition with others. Any money you choose to donate to Change.org after signing the petition does not go to the UFT or directly to this campaign.
