As the AFT continues to engage members in the presidential election and candidates continue to address issues relevant to working families, the education plan released by presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren this month made a particular impression on AFT educators. The plan would quadruple federal funding for schools serving low-income students and would address desegregation, special education, bilingual programs and mental health services with billions in federal spending. AFT President Randi Weingarten calls the plan “a game changer.” With a focus on equity and excellence for every child and every school, this transformational plan would "help us fulfill the promise and potential of public education as the foundation of our democracy and the great equalizer of opportunity in our nation.”
