ISTA Statement on End of 2022 Legislative Session

ISTA President Keith Gambill released the following statement on the conclusion of the 2022 legislative session.

“We’re thankful for all of the work by educators, public education advocates and the coalition of organizations this session to defeat legislation that would have been harmful to students, educators and the state.

From the first day of session, ISTA members wanted lawmakers to address their working and student’s learning conditions. Instead of building on the good efforts to address teacher pay last session, legislative leaders chose to dedicate so much time and energy catering to a radical national political narrative and culture war. ISTA and our members want to work with policymakers over the summer and the days leading up to the next session to create policy that unites us and benefits all students.”
