Randi Weingarten, President, American Federation of Teachers

The combative union representative of 1.7 million teachers, a former teacher herself, leads the fight against Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s campaign to boost charter schools and private school vouchers at the expense of the nation’s public school system. She is backing teachers in states such as Oklahoma and West Virginia who have staged walkouts to protest low teacher salaries and lack of adequate funding in public schools.
