Bill would recognize Education Support Professionals

Classified school employees—including paraeducators, clerical assistants, school bus drivers, custodians, food service workers, technicians and craftsmen, custodians, school nurses, and security professionals — provide essential services to America’s public schools and institutions of higher education.

Consider the daily work done by classified school employees. Without them:

  • The doors would not open
  • The bells would not ring
  • Classrooms would not be clean
  • Special students would miss crucial one-on-one support
  • The phones would not be answered
  • Students would go without lunch
  • The lights would not come on
  • Paychecks would not be issued
