The Teacher Action Group stands in solidarity with the Caucus of Working Educators, a caucus within the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers (PFT) organizing for transformation of our public schools. The Caucus envisions a democratic and transparent member-driven teachers union. They are running a slate of inspiring candidates in the upcoming PFT elections in winter of 2016.
