The Ohio Federation of Teachers is a union of professionals that champions the social and economic well-being of our members, Ohio's children, families, working people and communities. Our vision is that all citizens have access to the high quality public education and public services they need to develop their full potential.

We offer information via this site as a way to invite stakeholders - educators, parents, community members, students and others - to the conversation about improving education through ESSA. We hope you find this information useful and will join us to demand the kinds of changes that will benefit our children.

OFT represents more than 20,000 members in 55 local unions across the state that include public education employees, higher education faculty and support staff, and public employees. We are the state affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers.
