The newly elected Student CTA Executive Board took office on June 7. The group is already actively working toward distributed leadership; they have established themselves as an anti-racist organization by changing their mission statement to:
“The purpose of this association shall be to offer the tools necessary to foster interest in the education profession by providing pre-professionals information about their rights, responsibilities and vital support systems necessary to become a committed part of the education profession. Student CTA believes that in order to do these things listed, we must actively fight for racial and social justice by naming and working to dismantle White Supremacy Culture where it exists in and outside of our organization.”
Look for our interview with the board in an upcoming issue. Congratulations to all!
2020-21 Student CTA
