Note The California Federation of Teachers (CFT) is one of the largest affiliates of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), one of two major national organizations for the classroom teacher. Effective lobbying efforts in the state capital have made the CFT an important factor in the passage of many educational reform measures as initiatives. The roots of the organization reach back to 1919 when it was founded as the California State Federation of Teachers (CSFT). Its initial purpose was to unify the various educational union locals under AFT aegis to represent teacher interests within local school districts and to provide a central collective voice for classroom teachers throughout the state.
