Founded in 1863, the California Teachers Association has become one of the strongest advocates for educators in the country. CTA includes teachers, counselors, school librarians, social workers, psychologists, and nurses. These educators in the K-12 school system are joined by community college faculty, California State University faculty, and education support professionals to make CTA the most inclusive and most powerful voice of educators in the state.

The Campaign

The 2018 Election will be crucial for our organization as all statewide offices are up for election, including Governor and Superintendent of Public Instruction (SPI), as well as state senate, assembly and local school board seats. Who wins these races and their views on public education will have a direct impact on students and educators. To fight the attacks on public education that are coming from multiple fronts, we need leaders, we need champions and we need allies. #VotePublicEd
