Naperville, IL — Today, the Bill Foster campaign announced the endorsement of the Illinois Federation of Teachers. The IFT has more than 103,000 teachers, educational workers, university and community college faculty and staff, and state employees throughout Illinois.
“The future of this great country depends on our students getting a quality education,” said Bill Foster. “Members of IFT spend every single day working hard to give our children the quality education they deserve and need to thrive. At a time when education budgets and organized labor are under constant attack, I will keep fighting for strong schools and for strong teachers. I’m proud to receive the endorsement of this great organization.”
