Education

APV supports Public Education. We support teachers, students and parents who seek to empower each new generation through a love of knowledge.

APV opposes the move towards publicly funded private education. The state has no place in funding private, often religiously based schools.

APV opposes giving private, for profit corporations control of Public School Systems.

APV supports paying teachers a strong, competitive wage and we support the right of teachers to collectively bargain for pay and benefits.

APV supports decoupling education funding from property taxes. Our city, Commonwealth and nation are not well served by “a have and have not” system that rewards the already successful and punishes the most vulnerable
