Committee on Political Education

No matter your political party affiliation or preference, if you’ve worked in public schools, you know that everything – your salary, classroom materials, the curriculum you teach, etc. – is tied to politics.
The ATF Committee on Political Education (COPE) is funded by voluntary contributions* from ATF members. COPE is actively involved in local, state and national politics. We are constantly working for the best interests of public education, our colleagues, our students and the future of labor unions.

“I CONSIDER IT IMPORTANT, INDEED NECESSARY, FOR INTELLECTUAL WORKERS TO GET TOGETHER, BOTH TO PROTECT THEIR OWN ECONOMIC STATUS…AND TO SECURE THEIR INFLUENCE IN THE POLITICAL FIELD.”

Albert Einstein, on his decision to join the American Federation of Teachers
