ACTION ALERT

THANKS TO YOU WE DID IT!!!


The IFT had been working for over a year to urge the Illinois State Board of

Education (ISBE) to abandon their misguided proposal to increase state testing for grades 3-8 and expand testing to grades K-2; and thanks goes out to every member who sent emails, made phone calls, and even testified in Springfield to help the IFT and our education partners stop ISBE’s ill-conceived interim assessment plan. 

Read statement from Dan Mongomery, President of the IFT, about this great win.

Huge Wins for Local 943!!

AFT Local 943 members of have been standing together to receive decent benefits for staff, quality programs for students, and to thwart efforts to privatize custodial staff. Their efforts have been justly rewarded!
