CTA History: Where We've Been, Where We're Going
When CTA was founded in 1863, only a few hundred students attended public schools and teachers were poorly prepared and seriously underpaid. We’ve had many victories since then, from preventing the firing of a female teacher because she was married, to sponsoring and campaigning for Proposition 98, the landmark state constitutional amendment that guarantees a certain amount of the state’s budget for K-14 schools.
Revisit more of our history and victories that inspire us to continue the fight for equal access, justice and resources for all of California’s students, educators and classrooms.
