    The California Federation of Teachers has once again shown its hand – the union prioritizes progressive politics and social agendas above educating public school students.

    In a March 22 speech at the union’s 72nd convention, CFT President Joshua Pechthalt identified the union as “a beacon of progressive, social justice unionism” advocating “single payer health care reform and progressive tax reform measures” and “committed to the vision articulated by the civil rights movement and efforts to ensure class, race and gender equity and the just demands for comprehensive immigration reform.”

    Pechthalt added: “We understand that central to the mission of public education is the need to advocate for a different kind of society.”

    In other words, teaching students in the traditional manner is low priority for the 1.5 million member union.

    The "central need of public education" is to educate the public's children, and nothing more.
