EC/TK-12 Council is the voice of classroom teachers in California

The EC/TK-12 Council ensures that early childhood educators and TK-12 teachers have a voice within CFT, in the California Legislature, at the State Board of Education, the Commission on Teacher Credentialing, and other venues where education policy is developed. The Council is a fierce advocate for teachers having the necessary tools to do their jobs and for California students to have access to the highest quality education.
