With four months until a very important state election (very important for public education!) it is important to hold our politicians to account and ensure that decent funding and meaningful reforms for public education are at the top of the issues list in November.
If you are a public school teacher in the Victorian system then make sure you take the pledge too. Take your photo with a 'Take the pledge' sign and put it on your blog, Facebook page or whatever you prefer. A whole staff photo put up prominently in the staff room is also a good idea. The pledge signs can be found on the Victorian AEU site.
