One of our union’s top priorities is fighting efforts to further privatize our public education system — whether through new voucher schemes or expensive, unaccountable charter schools.
Our over-reliance on standardized testing serves no one. Judging students, teachers, & communities by a child’s performance on STAAR shouldn’t be the strategy for improving public education.
Texas AFT’s Bridges Institute for Professional Development provides diverse, high-quality programming and resources to support educator development in and out of the classroom.
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.
