Don’t Call me “Charter Teacher," says New Philly Leader

At the AFT national convention in Los Angeles in July, teachers from AFT-organized charter schools had a simple message: Don’t call us “charter teachers.” English teacher Antoinette Davis spoke about her experience in a Philadelphia charter school to thousands of AFT delegates on the convention floor.  “We are all educators,” she said.  “I want my AFT brothers and sisters to see me as a public school teacher at a charter.”
