      Today Is the National Call-In Day to Stop Fast Track

      The time to stop Fast Track is now or never. This terrible trade negotiation policy recently passed in the Senate.

      A record 99 percent of school budgets passed in New York on Tuesday, with just eight spending plans rejected, the state teachers’ union said this morning citing preliminary results. Schools were asking voters to approve austere budgets. New York’s nearly 700 school districts on Tuesday proposed an average spending increase of 1.9 percent and a tax levy increase of 1.6 percent.
