AFT assists its local subsidiaries, community partners and management partners in launching the community school strategy. Collective bargaining is another entry point for union leaders who are committed to this strategy. Through collective bargaining, we can help build programs and services that strengthen the bonds between schools, families and the community as a whole, and bring schools back to their home place. The concentrated efforts of teachers, school staff and their unions to contribute to the creation of community schools across the country are an example of quality unionism. With the help of their unions, educators and school staff can successfully build meaningful and lasting relationships with their communities and governing bodies to implement the community`s education strategy.
