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.
Communicating with Your Local CTA/ABC Committee Member
Your CTA/ABC Committee member is waiting to help you through every step of applying for chapter funds. Call or email your CTA/ABC Committee member as soon as you are aware of a local election in which your chapter may become involved. Discuss the issues you are facing in the election, whether it’s a much needed school bond or an educator-friendly school board. Your CTA/ABC Committee member will help you suggest an amount that would be reasonable to expect considering the size of your chapter and special circumstances of the election.
