AFT is strongly opposed to the nomination of billionaire Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education, as well as several other Trump cabinet appointees. After making significant wins for public education the past year, such as the replacement of NCLB with ESSA, education policy appears headed off the cliff, and the very existence of public education and unions is being threatened.
To keep members informed and mobilized, the AFT has created a single web page with updates and ways for members to get involved.
Staying informed and sticking together we can withstand this storm. Talk to your fellow teachers and contact state and federal representatives to tell them to support public education and the unions that give teachers a voice.
