Print More

The head of the country’s largest teachers union will be in Vermont today and is expected to speak out against the state’s new law to slow the growth of school spending.

Reg Weaver, president of the National Education Association, will address state teachers at the Vermont-NEA annual convention in Essex Junction.

He’s expected to call for a repeal of the state law that will require school boards to win approval for a supplemental budget if they want to increase spending by more than the rate of inflation plus one percent.

The Vermont-NEA opposes the two-vote law and is circulating a petition to repeal it.
