About This Lesson

AFT President Randi Weingarten opens TEACH 2021 with a speech honoring educators for their dedication during the most challenging year of their professional lives. Weingarten has emphasized the importance of fully and safely returning to in-person teaching and learning, and she will share updates from the AFT’s nationwide Back to School for All campaign. Join us as she offers a vision for this crucial upcoming school year and beyond—to help students recover socially, emotionally and academically, and to reimagine education to spark students’ passion, nurture critical thinking based on facts, and bring learning to life. Weingarten’s goal, like the goal of all educators, is for every public school to be a place where families want to send their children, teachers and staff want to work and students thrive.

AFT President Randi Weingarten's galvanizing national speech honors educators for their dedication during the COVID-19 pandemic and offers a powerful push for reopening schools for in-person learning, community schools, project-based instruction, literacy and civics—including the teaching of critical thinking and accurate history.

Kicking off the AFT’s biennial TEACH professional development conference before a virtual audience of thousands of AFT members and leaders, Weingarten celebrated students’ and teachers’ resilience.
