EDUCATORS CELEBRATE BIDEN-HARRIS VICTORY!

"NEA President: 'Educators know President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris are tireless advocates for public education and they are the partners students and educators need in the White House.'

For educators, today is a time to celebrate the historic election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, along with other critical wins for public education and students across the country. It is also time to reflect on the strength of our voice and the actions we took to preserve our democracy.

In the face of a global pandemic and in spite of a constant flow of disinformation meant to suppress votes, educators made their voices heard and helped others in their communities to safely cast ballots. Participation in NEA’s election activism programs saw nearly a 50 percent increase over 2016 levels, with nearly 230,000 members volunteering through their association.

Those efforts resulted in wins up and down the ballot, and helped achieve the largest voter turnout in modern history. Roughly 160 million ballots were cast, and Biden and Harris received the largest number of votes of any presidential ticket.

Educators are also celebrating Vice President-elect Kamala Harris’ smashing the glass ceiling as she becomes the first woman, first Black woman, and first person of Indian descent to be elected to national office. Hers is an achievement not only for the history books, but one that will inspire countless students by showing them that regardless of gender, race, or ethnicity, they too can hold the highest offices in our country.

“Across the nation, educators and students are celebrating this victory for public schools and communities,” said NEA President Becky Pringle. “No matter where we’re from or what we look like, we all want students to have great public schools. Educators know President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris are tireless advocates for public education and they are the partners students and educators need in the White House.”

Biden and Harris have shown time and again that they believe in public education and will listen to educators as we work together to battle the COVID-19 pandemic and emerge from the crisis a more equitable nation. With Dr. Jill Biden, an educator and longtime NEA member, as First Lady, educators will even have a colleague in the White House. Not since Eleanor Roosevelt has America’s First Lady been a union member, (From NEA Today By: Amanda Menas and Amanda Litvinov, Published: 11/07/2020)."
