Educators Will Not Be Silenced

Deyshia Hargrave is a middle school teacher and a tremendous advocate for her students and for educators. She was taken from a school board meeting in handcuffs this week after questioning a raise given to the Vermilion Parish Schools Superintendent, despite years of stagnant wages for educators that have made it difficult to retain the educators Vermilion students deserve.

Every educator must be able to speak out without fear or retaliation on the issues that matter to educators, their students, and their communities.

Add your name if you agree.

As educators, students are at the center of everything we do, and the voices of educators are essential to ensuring a great education for every student regardless of ZIP code. Arresting Deyshia Hargrave is a chilling infringement on her rights, but we will not be silenced.
