MTA recommends Clinton for president

The Massachusetts Teachers Association Board of Directors voted on July 31 to concur with the National Education Association’s recommendation of Hillary Clinton for president. The MTA is the state affiliate of the NEA.

The MTA represents more than 110,000 educators who work in public schools and public higher education institutions in Massachusetts.

The NEA Representative Assembly voted on July 5 to recommend Clinton for president. The MTA Board’s vote to concur with the NEA decision came on the heels of the Democratic National Convention, at which Clinton was named the nominee with support from her main rival, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.
