Statement from the MTA Board of Directors:

The Haverhill Education Association and the Malden Education Association have been undergoing months and months of contentious contract negotiations with their respective districts. Yesterday, the HEA and MEA overwhelmingly voted to strike on Monday if they cannot get fair agreements. The Massachusetts Teachers Association’s Board of Directors stands in solidarity with the HEA and MEA for fair contracts.

In Malden and Haverhill, our members are fighting for the common good. When school committees fail to settle fair contracts, they disrespect not only educators, but also the students and the communities that depend on our public schools. Malden and Haverhill are saying enough is enough. We applaud the courage of our locals and our members to act and speak out to achieve what their students, educators and communities deserve.

It is with great sadness that I share the news that former FREA president and longtime Durfee teacher, Joseph M. Quinn passed on October 2, 2022.

I didn't have the opportunity to meet Mr. Quinn personally but I have been contacted by several of his former colleagues who shared great stories about the type of teacher and unionist that he was. They remember him as a strong leader and good friend. His leadership during the 1978 FREA Strike was noted by all.

On behalf of the association I would like to extend our condolences to Mr. Quinn's family, friends, and former students.

Today is World Teachers' Day: Importance of history, theme and significance of the day

A joint message from officials of UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation), ILO (International Labour Organisation) and Education International reads, “Today, on World Teachers’ Day, we celebrate the critical role of teachers in transforming learners’ potential by ensuring they have the tools they need to take responsibility for themselves, for others and for the planet. We call on countries to ensure that teachers are trusted and recognised as knowledge producers, reflective practitioners, and policy partners.”

World Teachers’ Day is celebrated to honour teachers for their accomplishments, efforts, and contribution to society as well as to the lives of their students.

Black history, women's history overlap in the story of a groundbreaking Fall River teacher

Too often teachers leave the profession for reasons that have nothing to do with students or teaching. Mrs. Sarah Anne Lewis' story tells us how far we've come in a relatively short time but also how long it takes to change even the most egregious practices. Today's world is not what it once was but we still have a lot to fight for.

Sarah Anna Lewis was the first Black person to earn a degree from Bridgewater. But after two years of teaching, discrimination caught up with her.

Last month the New Bedford Coalition to Save Our Schools called on BayCoast Bank to withdraw its support for the proposed Innovators Charter School.

This week bank president and CEO Nicolas Christ did just that! He stepped down from the board of the proposed charter and withdrew any involvement by bank employees.
