Coming April 4: 'Educators United With Our Communities Day'
California’s community colleges have always relied on the support of local communities. On April 4, let’s both thank our communities and demonstrate our support for them with local activities for Educators United with Our Communities Day.
A Call to Action for the Public Education All California's Students Deserve
The 325,000 members of CTA and CCA are committed to making sure all California’s students get the public education they deserve. We ask all Californians, including elected leaders regardless of party affiliation, to join us in supporting a strong, inclusive, safe and innovative public education system that ensures all students can succeed, regardless of their ZIP code. We urge our local CCA chapters to adopt this Resolution of Unity, Resolve and Resilience or use it to create your own.
