EAST WINDSOR TEACHERS ENDORSE GREENSTEIN FOR CONGRESS
The East Windsor Education Association last night voted to endorse Linda Greenstein for Congress, citing her strong record of support for teachers, students, and public education.
“From fighting for adequate school aid for our suburban communities to standing up for kids and teachers, Linda Greenstein has been a true friend to public education,” said Ellen Ogintz, president of the East Windsor Education Association. “Linda knows that strong public schools make strong communities, and she has always kept the interest of the taxpayer in mind. In addition, Linda has been a champion of important issues facing seniors in our communities today, and she has been on the front line fighting for safer gun laws, an issue of interest to everyone across the state. We’re excited to give her our unwavering support.”
Greenstein said she would be a forceful voice in Congress for greater investments in public schools, and for giving teachers greater flexibility in the classroom, rather than having to teach to the needs of standardized tests.
“I am always grateful to have the backing of our public school teachers, as I would not have been able to achieve what I have if it weren’t for the public school teachers who taught me,” said Greenstein. “Our future rides on giving all of our kids a top-notch education. Together with our teachers and communities we can do just that.”
