Sign the petition! End teacher “bumping” in Providence schools


Join Brown University’s Students for Education Reform and SIGN OUR PETITION to END TEACHER “BUMPING” in Providence public schools. The Rhode Island Department of Education has ordered the Providence school district to fill teacher vacancies based on TEACHER QUALITY and STUDENT NEED, not just seniority.

Teacher “bumping” forces QUALITY teachers out of the classroom. Research has shown that principals need the authority to hire teachers based on TEACHER QUALITY and STUDENT NEED to help students succeed.

The Providence Teachers Union will likely sue to protect seniority. SIGN OUR PETITION to send a message to the Providence Public School Department that we support any effort they take to END TEACHER “BUMPING,” and that we will hold them accountable for doing so.
