Press Releases

In the aftermath of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, President Donald J. Trump suggested issuing concealed-carry permits to teachers on school campuses.

In response, UFT President Michael Mulgrew issued the following statement:

Teachers should be marking papers, not being trained in marksmanship. We need to be preparing our lessons, not learning how to reload a gun.
