The Fair Start mission statement

The Coalition for Compassion and Justice offered its belief statement for the new Fair Start program — supply donations and cash or check donations accepted through July 15 — Fair Start should be in the memo line of all checks.

“We believe schools should have the necessary funding to pay teachers and staff in a way that recognizes and supports their professionalism.

“We believe schools should have the necessary funding to provide school supplies for every student, regardless of a student’s ability to pay.

“Until such time as there are enough funds for schools to meet the above needs, we believe our Tri-Cities communities must support all of our childrens’ needs for school supplies.”

The quote at the bottom of the flier reads: “Teaching: The only profession where you steal supplies from home and take them TO work!”
