    Monitoring the legislative process and advocating for laws that achieve gains for students, teachers and public education are among the cornerstones of CTA's mission. CTA’s State Council of Education is comprised of more than 700 elected teacher leaders and is the statewide representative body of the Association. This large, diverse group of elected representatives serves as the policymaking body, considering and acting on legislation affecting the welfare of public schools in California. 

    The State Council representatives’ role is to help prioritize the CTA legislative agenda by asking these important questions:

    • Will this legislation make public schools better for students, families, educators and the greater education community?
    • Does this legislation protect and promote the well-being of our members and improve the conditions of teaching and learning?
    • Does this legislation support and advance the development and quality of the teaching profession and that of Education Support Professionals?

    This is a vital process in which CTA continues to strengthen its role as the voice for public education in California.
