FWEA stands in support of our colleagues, students, and others who have participated in protests supporting racial equality and civil justice. Educational equity is racial equity, and calling out institutional practices that have perpetuated inequality is necessary to bring about the systemic changes needed to ensure equal rights and equality of opportunity for every American.

Watch this video to learn how reinstating full bargaining rights for Indiana's teachers will help turn around the state's growing teacher shortage and make stronger, healthier, and more successful public schools for all Hoosier children: teacher working conditions are student learning conditions! 

2021-22 Indiana Teacher of the Year: Congratulations to us ALL!

UPDATED BUDGET IS GOOD NEWS FOR SCHOOLS!
 

Thanks to educators across the state for their continuing advocacy--particularly over the past few years. The level of funding restored to public schools is a direct result of this hard work. 

  • The budget will invest a total of $16 billion in K-12 funding, representing a 9.1% increase

  • This level of funding will support the amount recommended by Governor Holcomb's Teacher Compensation Commission to bring Indiana teacher pay in line with teacher compensation in our neighboring states
