The country’s two largest teachers’ unions will be well represented at the Democratic Convention next week.
The American Federation of Teachers will have 135 delegates in attendance.
The National Education Association will be sending more than 200 delegates—including 22 superdelegates. Their biggest delegation is from Alabama, with 22 members, followed by North Carolina, with 15.
But the delegate making the farthest trek comes from Wasilla, Alaska, near Anchorage. That’s 3,180 miles from Denver—according to the Google map I included above.
