Top Issues

School Funding

From fighting for more equitable funding at the state level to advocating for strong contracts and adequate funding at the local level, MSEA and your local union have your back.

Educator Voice

Decisions about schools and what’s best for students should be made by the educators who know them best. MSEA fights to make sure that educators have a seat at the table and a voice in the policies that impact our students and our professions.

Racial and Social Justice

We stand with our most vulnerable students, colleagues, and communities to end the inequities based on race, wealth, opportunity, and other factors.

ESP Bill of Rights

We advocate for the resources, policies, and programs that build presence, strength, and power for Education support professionals (ESPs). ESPs are essential employees and critical to the success of our public schools.


MSEA has a long history of working to ensure that more time is spent on learning, instruction, and developing well-rounded skills and less on mandated standardized testing that drains hours and excitement from the school day.

Anti-Privatization Efforts

Our schools should be centers of communities, not centers of profit. We defend our public schools from voucher schemes, corporate for-profit charter chains, and local efforts to privatize educator jobs.
