Through the union’s Committee on Political Education, the CFT provides a strong voice in shaping the political climate that, in turn, shapes education in California and the nation. The CFT interviews candidates to determine those most committed and capable of championing the interests of educators and classified employees locally and in the State Capitol. When the union finds true supporters of member interests, the union endorses them. The CFT also reviews state ballot propositions and makes recommendations. Find our endorsements here.
