Join a picket line to support teachers at your nearest Portland Public School every weekday morning, 7:45-10:15am. A citywide rally will be held in a different location each day at 12:00pm – follow the Portland Association of Teachers (PAT) on social media for location info.  

The Portland Association of Teachers presented a proposal that would address unsafe conditions in neighborhood public schools including unsafe classroom temperatures, mold, and rodent infestations. It also would have set enforceable limits on class sizes, ensuring educators are able to meet the individual needs of their students.

PPS has refused to make progress on these and other critical student-centered proposals, continuing to use talking points about district management’s manufactured budget crisis.

Teachers are striking to ensure the district meets our demands so that every Portland student can attend a great public school.
