Our Vision

This is for every educator committed to the struggle for racial, social, and economic justice work. We refuse to be blamed for the failure of our society to erase poverty and inequality, and refuse to accept curriculum, assessments, tests, and evaluations imposed by those who have contempt for real teaching and learning. BATs will promote activism and pro-union work that actively fights against attempts to dismantle public education and for positive, collaborative and supportive work environments.
