President Joe Biden on April 21 revealed his intent to appoint AFT Secretary-Treasurer Fedrick C. Ingram to the Presidential Advisory Commission on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence, and Economic Opportunity for Black Americans.

The commission’s objectives include promoting career pathways for Black students via internships and other work-based learning initiatives, along with increasing public awareness of the educational disparities Black Americans face and providing solutions to these problems.

In his career, the Miami-raised Ingram (shown above in February speaking at the Take Back Rutgers rally) has been a music teacher in Florida and president of the Florida Education Association. He was an AFT vice president for six years before being elected as its secretary-treasurer.
