Meeting the Needs of the Whole Student

The front line of public education begins with the first school bus ride in the morning, and ends when the custodian turns off the lights at night. As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, coaches, bus drivers, food service workers, security personnel, custodians and maintenance staff, and other support professionals in our schools.

Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals (ESPs). Advocating for better working and learning conditions for our ESPs is part of strengthening an entire school community.

Did you know Education Support Professionals make up one-third of the entire education workforce? In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
