Message from Randi Weingarten, AFT President

Just more than a week ago, I visited Detroit’s schools. What I saw there was shocking and heartbreaking. Under Detroit’s emergency manager, school funding has gone from bad to worse, educators and students have been treated shamefully and the schools have been left to rot. Literally.


Scranton Federation of Teachers Ratifies Contract

SCRANTON, Pa.—The Scranton Federation of Teachers, which successfully fought off proposals to silence educators, today overwhelmingly ratified a two-year contract for its 940 teachers and 110 paraprofessionals. Students will return to school on Wednesday.
The strike began on Sept. 25.

Scranton, PA children need our help

While our brothers and sisters in Scranton, Pa., walk the picket line for a fair contract, Scranton children need our help.

Eighty percent of Scranton’s 10,000 public school children qualify for free or reduced-price lunch and many of them depend on the meals they receive at school. With schools closed because of the strike, many families are turning to local food pantries for assistance.
