2020 General Election Recommendations
Your vote makes a difference. Help pass initiatives and elect lawmakers who support public education, students, educators and our communities. Know that when you cast your vote for CTA-recommended candidates, you are voting for those who support students, teaching, and learning.
Our Union makes recommendations on candidates and issues to support at the ballot based on a transparent, democratic process and always with the best intentions for our students and public education.
Across California, far too many of our schools and communities struggle to provide the resources that should be a given in one of the wealthiest regions in the world. Students read outdated textbooks, potholes make our roads dangerous, there’s not enough time in the day for school nurses to care for thousands of students assigned to them, and teachers have to dig deep into their own pockets to provide their classrooms with the most basic of necessities.
It doesn’t have to be this way. We just have to close an unfair tax loophole that has allowed corporations to go decades without paying their fair share.
