It also gives Association members a genuine voice in their workplace, helping to ensure educator rights, fair compensation and benefits, retirement security, and enhanced, safe conditions for student learning.
OUR APPROACH: STUDENT-CENTERED ADVOCACY
Students, and student-centered issues, are at the heart of our organizing and engagement efforts. This type of advocacy is about taking charge and implementing educator-led solutions that work for our students and their schools. It involves leveraging collective power in new ways to raise the voice and vision of educators and build stronger partnerships with parents, students, and other community stakeholders that share common values. In our advocacy for the schools South Carolina students deserve, The SCEA members fight for:
- smaller class sizes
- less testing
- increased staffing of nurses and counselors
- community schools.
A collective group like The SCEA is a proven, trusted network to support you in the ability to step out there and say “This has to change,” and you won’t be stepping out alone.
