WEA supports high expectations and standards for all students in our public schools and on our college campuses. We also know the learning styles and needs of students vary, as do the challenges each community faces.
WEA supports legislation to increase funding for social emotional learning. WEA also supports legislation that increases student learning, supports student health, and eliminates disruptions and other barriers to student success – including unnecessary testing and assessments.
Expanded access to mental health services and related support
All students need adequate access to nurses, counselors, school psychologists and social workers (this priority also falls under school safety and building stronger relationships with students). WEA also supports increased funding for family engagement coordinators and staff to support student and staff safety.
