About This Webinar

Join AFT President Randi Weingarten and Share My Lesson for an important update on the state of public education in this special keynote session for the 2024 Virtual Conference! This is proving to be another challenging year for early childhood educators, preK-12 teachers, paraprofessionals and school-related personnel, specialized instructional support personnel, and higher education faculty and staff. Hear directly from President Weingarten on the issues that matter most and our work to support students, educators, families and communities. This year’s session will share updates on the AFT’s Real Solutions for Kids and Communities campaign and the expanding Reading Opens the World initiative. Weingarten also will delve into tough topics like the fight for democracy, the role of artificial intelligence in education, addressing teacher burnout, and how together we can bridge divides and create community. Don’t miss this important keynote session.
