WASHINGTON—Following meetings with Secretary Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Gov. Martin O’Malley, the American Federation of Teachers launched an ad buy today in the all-important primary state of New Hampshire. The digital ad seeks to highlight the importance of public education for our children and our country.
“At kitchen tables across the country, families are having serious conversations about their neighborhood public schools, and their ability to get ahead and stay ahead,” said AFT President Randi Weingarten. “We're focused on making sure that the voices of working families are heard by presidential candidates and that the conversation about public education and our economy extends from the kitchen table to the campaign trail.”
On Saturday, AFT President Randi Weingarten will travel to New Hampshire to engage members in a conversation about the candidates, the issues and how to shape the debate as presidential hopefuls begin to visit the Granite State.
