A National Snapshot of ESP Wages and How to Advocate for a Livable Wage.

Thursday, June 22, 2023
7:00-8:00 p.m. ET

It’s no secret that ESPs are underpaid. Recent data shows that ESPs, on average, earn at least $10,000 below a basic living wage in every state of our country. Join NEA ESP Quality (ESPQ) and Collective Bargaining and Member Advocacy (CBMA) staff, who will walk participants through the new 2023 ESP Earnings Report data and share information on how to advocate for livable wages for ESPs.


Investing in Paraeducators: Develop, Empower, and Transform

Thursday May 18, 2023
7:00-8:00 p.m. ET

Presenter: Eric W. Underhill, MAT, M.Ed, CSML

Join us to learn how one school's commitment to paraeducator development, through the work of a team of school leaders and ESPs in a Northern Virginia Middle School, transformed how a district invested in ESPs. The school realized increased instructional quality, ESP self-efficacy, and workplace equity by investing in differentiated professional learning, leadership development, and workplace equity.

Participants will have an opportunity to develop questions for their own site based questionnaire as we discuss the importance and power of paraeducator voice within the instructional leadership decision making process.
