California’s Educators Congratulate President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris for Their Historical Victory

Burlingame, CA... California Teachers Association President E. Toby Boyd issued the following statement congratulating President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for their historical victory in which they garnered nearly 76,000,000 votes in the 2020 election.

"On behalf of our 310,000 members, CTA congratulates President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their reverberating win.

“This historic victory marks the beginning of a new era of promise and hope for a future that celebrates democracy and embraces our differences. Our newly elected leaders recognize public education is the very fiber of our democracy and are committed to working alongside educators to ensure America’s students have an equitable, just and adequately funded system that promotes unity through opportunity and inclusivity in our schools and colleges.

“More than 74 million voters, amidst the pandemic, historically voted for the first woman to serve as our nation’s Vice President. We congratulate and celebrate California’s own Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for this momentous victory - a victory for Black, South Asian, and women and girls of all descents.

“President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris are the leaders our nation needs at this very moment. Working with the scientific and medical experts, they will prioritize combating the coronavirus and its effects on the economy by providing much-needed, science-based guidance and resources across all sectors, including our public schools and colleges. United and following common sense measures, we can begin to heal as a nation.

“We are also grateful to see California’s own Linda Darling Hammond leading the education transition team. Her breadth of knowledge and expertise in this process will ensure our students end up with a competent practitioner serving as the Secretary of Education following a term of blinded, self-serving actions that stripped students of the most basic American rights.

“We look forward to working with, and supporting the Biden-Harris administration as we prioritize safely reopening schools for in-person teaching and learning, and having the resources, testing and necessary safety measures in place to protect our students, educators and communities.”


The 310,000-member California Teachers Association is affiliated with the 3 million-member National Education Association.

California teachers were reported to have registered their students, then voted for Biden when their student's mail-in ballots arrived at the teacher's residence.

    What the hell? Congratulate for what? Sloppy Joe is going to keep the schools closed except for the private religious schools who are exempt from this virus. Those schools are open and don't practice social distancing or wear masks. What a bunch of hypocrites. This is exactly why the virus cases are increasing in California.

        Reported by whom?
        Reality check.
        E learning is hard on everyone.
        Teachers would much rather be in their classrooms.
        Not an ideal situation for anyone.
        Most teachers are parents too, so to say they are getting a paid vacation is a joke.
        Put your money where your mouth is and go volunteer to work with these children that have returned to the classroom. Nothing like facing 5,10, 15 kids with masks on. Whether they're carrying covid, flu, the common cold, or meningitis is just part of being an adult that's chosen a career in education.
        Try focusing your energy on being part of the solution to what we are facing.

            Biden and the unions will be shacking up if this crazy election gets certified. The teachers union is a serious problem with education today. They get their marching orders to indoctrinate our children with the liberal ideas that are ruining this country. Can't be fired because you are in the union doesn't work for me!

              Why do you argue against your own self interest? Unions benefit workers.

                Lol, So to the person above referring to a Trump celebration in Dec. Hillary conceded ya goof ball! Lol. Next no surprise that the teachers are not aware of the election process. What is California ranked nationally? Oh yeah, I would say that’s a epic failure! Is anyone really surprised? NO
