We are outraged to hear this story. It's horrifying enough to have active shooter drills in classrooms without teachers having to experience physical pain.😡 now have to work to get language prohibiting teachers from being shot w/ ammunition to a school safety bill.

Trump’s 4-part strategy: 1) Disparage someone/group of people w/ rants & insults. 2) Divide the nation through controversy. 3) Distract from your attempts to cut taxes & cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. 4) Destroy the safety-nets and repeal regulations. Repeat.

When two-thirds of those on death row are people of color and one-third have a severe mental illness, the application of justice is not equal. The disparities are profound, and that’s why we must end the death penalty.

CTA sends love, healing and solidarity to Muslim communities and everyone affected by the horrific shooting in . We must continue to fight Islamophobia, white supremacy and hatred, and show our students it is NOT okay.

Educators welcome CA Task Force but are concerned w/make-up of committee: "We're concerned w/number of charter school advocates... We hope task force will be objective in its approach & take an honest look at the impact to students & public ed."

Join students, parents and educators and urge your CA Assemblymember and Senator to vote YES on a package of bills that would fix the broken laws governing charter schools in California. 📝

In CA, 34 (operated by 5 for-profit education management orgs) enroll about 25,000 students. These siphon hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer money away from students to generate massive corporate profits👎
