This morning, AFT president Randi Weingarten’s monthly New York Times/Huffington Post column will focus on the importance of collective voice, drawing from her keynote address at AFT TEACH. She writes,
“Two-thousand educators descended on Washington, D.C., to learn from experts and one another, and once there, the theme was resounding: The voices of educators matter. Especially in an era of toxic debates and top-down dictates, the voices of educators matter.
Where educators are raising and combining their voices, the seeds of positive change have emerged. Collective voice, exercised through the union, is powerâ€”the power to drive real change for our kids, families and communities. The stories we heard this week speak for themselves.”
