Si Beagle

The legacy of Si Beagle

Si Beagle was an extraordinary man. He began his teacher career in the New York City public school system in 1925 and helped build this great union.

When he retired in the late 1960’s, he felt that it was the union’s responsibility to provide educational programs for all retired members. With Al Shanker’s support, he initiated the RTC Learning Center.

Today 58,000 retired teachers are members of the United Federation of Teachers Welfare Fund Retiree Programs.
