Teachers and public education are getting hit from all sides these days—governors, legislators and so-called education reformers are taking swipes, often without pausing for one minute to consult those of us who are making a difference every day in the lives of our students.
Here’s an easy way to send a message to those who are attempting to take away our voice: Purchase a “Those who can, TEACH. Those who can’t, pass laws about teaching” button from the AFT store.
Proceeds from button sales will go to the America Votes Labor Unity Fund. Established by national labor unions, the fund helps defend private and public sector workers and their unions against state legislation, ballot measures and executive orders aimed at undermining or destroying organizing and bargaining rights and employment standards.
