FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 10/24/12 Contact: Dylan Rubin, 562-307-7135

STATEMENT FROM AMA NYAMEKYE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF EDUCATORS 4 EXCELLENCE-LOS ANGELES, ON LACK OF ACTION ON RACE TO THE TOP: "We hope UTLA and LAUSD can agree and move forward quickly on a meaningful system for teacher evaluation and support. Moving forward is critical to ensuring that we are able to secure up to $40 million in federal Race to the Top dollars that the district aims to invest in better supports for teachers, smarter use of technology and individualized support and enrichment programs for students. At a time when we're asking voters to dig deeper to raise more revenue for our schools, we should reassure them that the district and the union are committed to pursuing and investing any new funds to work for students." ###
For far too long, education policy has been created without a critical voice at the table – the voice of classroom teachers. Educators 4 Excellence (E4E), a teacher-led organization, is changing this dynamic by placing the voices of teachers at the forefront of the conversations that shape our classrooms and careers. With a quickly growing national network of more than 7,000 educators united by the E4E Declaration of Teachers’ Principles and Beliefs, E4E teachers can learn about education policy and research, network at E4E’s event series with like-minded colleagues and important education policymakers, and take action by advocating for teacher-created policy recommendations that lift student achievement and the teaching profession.
