The AFT and The Weinstein Company brought the story of Nelson Mandela's life and his message of social justice, reconciliation and leadership to Los Angeles public high school students with a screening of the film "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom."
AFT president Randi Weingarten is calling on educators to join with parents and community partners throughout the country in an effort to fulfill our collective responsibility to enable individual opportunity for all children. The materials in this toolkit are intended to help leaders find out more about Reclaiming the Promise and take action in their own communities.
In her latest column appearing in the New York Times, AFT President Randi Weingarten writes about the necessity of making early childhood education a priority in this country.
The entire AFT family is heartbroken by the loss of life and devastation caused by Super Typhoon Haiyan, and the AFT is prepared to help any way we can with recovery efforts, says AFT President Randi Weingarten.
AFT affiliates and their community partners are gearing up for a Dec. 9 National Day of Action to Reclaim the Promise of Public Education.
