20160705 NEA VOTE RR 01


If any two people know how to win a vote it’s Randi and Lily.
When the NEA and the AFT gave Hillary an early endorsement over Bernie Sanders, many scratched their heads trying to figure out what the two teacher unions gained by this.
By hitching the unions’ wagons to the HRC campaign so early, it seemed to many observers that we lost whatever bargaining chip we had.
The AFT’s Randi Weingarten and the NEA’s Lily Eskelsen Garcia promised members that an early endorsement would ensure that teachers got a seat at the table.
And so it has.
Mother Jones published a list of those who are serving on Hillary’s K-12 policy working group.
