Keynote Address

Reclaiming the Promise of Public Education 
Randi Weingarten, President, American Federation of Teachers

Our public schools represent our nation’s commitment to helping all children dream their dreams and achieve them. A high-quality public education for all children is an economic necessity, an anchor of democracy, a moral imperative and a fundamental civil right, without which none of our other rights can be fully realized.
