Letter to the editor: Group encourages Ridgefield district negotiators to listen to teachers’ concerns

Posted

Teachers are the lifeblood of a school district. They do the work the district promises its community intelligently, creatively, cooperatively, and wisely selecting and implementing learning activities, watching how students respond, challenging them, encouraging them, and assessing them. All aspects of school district efforts must respect and leverage the wisdom and concerns of teachers. 

This principle applies, as well, to negotiations with the teachers’ union. The Ridgefield Community Group strongly encourages Ridgefield district negotiators to listen to teachers’ concerns about special education, professional development, building a more equitable district, school safety and other topics. You employ caring, insightful, career-long learners. Use their wisdom to develop the “premier” district of your dreams.
