ADVERT Training (Member Benefit)
This training teaches us how to help support gun shot and stab wounds. This Active shooter training teaches us some things we can do to try and help save ourselves, our students, coworkers, and families.
This platform can help support the "whole student." Supporting the whole student includes supporting those that lead them! You are all leaders! This is for all educators, which includes Paraprofessionals! Thank you all for all you do!
The AFT has always been a solutions-driven union, and our new campaign, launched during TEACH on July 21, proves it once again with a fresh, practical approach to strengthening public education. As AFT President Randi Weingarten pointed out during her keynote speech, the $5 million, yearlong campaign, “Real Solutions for Kids and Communities,” stands up against attacks on public schools and offers real-world solutions to build up, rather than break down, our communities.
Summer is upon us, and parents, children and teachers are winding down from what has been an exhausting and fully operational school year—the first since the devastating pandemic. The long-lasting impact of COVID-19 has affected our students’ and families’ well-being and ignited the politics surrounding public schools. All signs point to the coming school year unfolding with the same sound and fury, and if extremist culture warriors have their way, being even more divisive and stressful.
We thank National AFT for providing us with Leven "Chuck" Wilson. This gentleman is a mental health expert. The training he is providing us with is the reason we are able to continue walking in buildings serving our students. We are learning that our mental health is just as important as our physical health! Thanks Chuck!!
In AFT President Randi Weingarten’s latest New York Times column, she describes what it is exactly that unions do. Though unions are the most popular they have been in decades, anti-union sentiment still thrives in red states and across the nation. “Several years ago, The Atlantic ran a story whose headline made even me, a labor leader, scratch my head: ‘Union Membership: Very Sexy,’” Weingarten writes in the column. “The gist was that higher wages, health benefits and job security—all associated with union membership—boost one’s chances of getting married. Belonging to a union doesn’t actually guarantee happily ever after, but it does help working people have a better life in the here and now.” Click through to read the full column.
