American Federation of Teachers
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is one of the nation's most militant labor unions. AFT's stock-in-trade is conflict, hostility, and distortion.
American schools are in crisis, yet the AFT opposes the vast majority of credible education reforms aimed at fixing our failing schools. They're part of the problem, not the solution.Learn More About the AFT
As head of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten fights tooth and nail against reforms that would fix our failing schools.
"Rubber Room" Randi is on a crusade to keep poor children stuck in subpar schools, stymie school reforms, and protect the jobs of incompetent teachers.Meet Randi
