Federation of Teachers endorsement

Political Endorsement

The American Federation of Teachers, a 1.6 million-strong national union, votes to endorse Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.

Hillary Clinton, a product of public schools herself, believes in the promise of public education. From early childhood learning through higher education, she sees how that promise can create real opportunity for kids, building a much-needed bridge to the middle class.

Clinton speaks often on the campaign trail about early childhood education, particularly on the importance of speaking and singing to young children, and calls for universal pre-kindergarten. She has endorsed President Obama’s plan to make community colleges free.
