Legislative Update as Session Adjourns for 2017

This was another interesting year in Sacramento followed by an election that led to a lot of uncertainty—uncertainty in terms of federal funding, politically-charged mandates about jeopardizing the integrity of our immigrant families and communities, and the list goes on.

One thing that was very clear, was that CTA remained the strong organization it is because of the strength of its 325,000 members standing together from north to south and east to west. We faced legislative attacks, passed good policies that help ensure each student receives the public education they need and deserve, and were also able to kill bills that would have been detrimental to our students and their education.

In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to take a more complete look at the list of bills. For now, here’s a brief snapshot as the Legislature adjourns for 2017.
