National coalition of teacher unions calls on President-elect Joe Biden to appoint a U.S. secretary of education who will restore commitment to public education
Unions representing 300k+ educators and school-related personnel lay out a common good, Black and Brown student-focused approach to a Biden-led Department of Education.
Today we reflect, but tomorrow we get back to work and continue to push our leaders in fighting for the schools our students deserve.
VP Biden stands on a debate stage and calls for more funding for our schools, better ventilated buildings, smaller class sizes and increased educator staffing. Trump stands on stage at superspreader events and calls for schools to reopen amidst a surge in positive COVID-19 cases, and a U.S. death toll nearing 250,000.
