It was an enriching experience for Sh. Ram Pal Singh, President to attend the 95th Representative Assembly of largest teachers union in the world namely National Education Association at Washington, DC. The AIPTF also felt privileged to be a part of such an extraordinary event.
The 95th NEA Representative Assembly (RA) kicked off with the typical energetic celebration, as the 7,000 delegates danced to sounds of Prince and Michael Jackson blasting through the Washington, D.C., Convention Centre.
In her address to the RA, Clinton also spotlighted her priorities for public education, vowing to elevate the teaching profession, de-emphasize standardized testing, and harness community resources to help create great public schools for every student regardless of Zip code. And it’s time to stop the war on teachers, Clinton told the delegates.
“I’m with you. If I’m fortunate enough to be elected president, educators will have a partner in the White House – and you’ll always have a seat at the table,” she announced to resounding cheers from the delegates.
