West Virginia Teachers’ Unions call for canceling of special session on education

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WOWK) – Three West Virginia teacher and school personal unions are calling for the cancellation of the special session on education.

The unions say that because charter schools and education savings accounts may be resurrected during the special session Governor Jim Justice as well as lawmakers should cancel the session. 

The West Virginia Education Association, the American Federation-Teachers West Virginia, and West Virginia School Service Personnel Association all took part in the press conference

“If you want to keep beating the same drum stay home and don’t waste our taxpayer dollars on a BS special session,” said WVSPA Executive Director Joe White. “Let’s glove up, meet in January and let the bell ring don’t hide behind these walls in the summer.”

The unions want the proposed education reform measures to be debated during the 2020 regular session.
