Our Bridges Institute for Professional Development provides high-quality programming to support educator development in and out of the classroom.
At the Capitol
If we want to keep dedicated teachers and staff in our public schools, it’s time for the Texas Legislature to fully fund our schools and fully respect our school staff.
Texas AFT works to better the profession of educators by promoting effective public education policy to improve the pay and working conditions of teachers, nurses, counselors, and other professionals.
Our union also represents higher education employees at community colleges and universities. We are actively organizing higher ed local unions around the state.
Support personnel — from bus drivers to cafeteria workers to custodians — keep our schools running. Texas AFT aims to represent their varied interests on the local and state levels.
