Reclaiming the Promise

AFT president Randi Weingarten is calling on educators to join with parents and community partners throughout the country in an effort to fulfill our collective responsibility to enable individual opportunity for all children. The materials in this toolkit are intended to help leaders find out more about Reclaiming the Promise and take action in their own communities.
