Early learning: This is not a test

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.


See a Bully, Stop a Bully, Make a Difference

Bullying is a serious problem that affects kids and teens throughout the nation. It can happen anywhere: face-to-face, on the web or over the phone. As serious as this problem is, the good news is that we can join together to stop it.

Bullying awareness is an issue that AFT and our members feel strongly about. To show our commitment to anti-bullying, we are providing list of resources, including this Power Point presentation, that offers tools and information regarding bullying. The Alabama Federation of Teachers also has materials to help you spread the word that bullying is not ok.
