CTA Association for Better Citizenship

The CTA Association for Better Citizenship (CTA/ABC) Committee works to make sure the voices of students and teachers are heard in our local schools and communities throughout the state. Over the years, elected officials supported by CTA/ABC have helped change the face of public education in California, scoring wins for students, local schools and teachers. Whether it's a local bond issue or establishing new state educational standards, teachers must be involved in the decisions that directly affect our public schools and students. CTA/ABC makes sure our message is heard.
