Our schools and communities — historically underfunded and disproportionately impacted by the pandemic — need a comprehensive plan for pandemic recovery and beyond.
The Beyond Recovery platform, developed by UTLA members, parents, and community allies over months of meetings and dialogue, addresses the urgent needs of our students at a time when historic levels of funding are coming to school districts.
The LAUSD budget for 2021-22 increased by more than $5 billion, and the district will end the school year with billions of dollars in funding — a rare and crucial opportunity to win significant improvements that ensure our neighborhood public schools meet the unique needs of students, families, and educators in each community.
In spring 2022, LA educators will bring the Beyond Recovery platform into negotiations with the school district. This is a pivotal time when educators, allied with parents and the community, can collectively fight to transform public education in LA.
