New Report Reveals Teachers Unions Bully Teachers and Competitors
In routine tracking of education-related legislation, The Heartland Institute’s School Reform News has uncovered evidence that teachers unions across the country routinely inhibit teachers from joining or speaking out about competing, nonunion teachers associations. SRN compiled the evidence into a report available online.
"Taken alone, they’re isolated annoying incidents," the report reads. "Together, they form a pattern of repression and discrimination akin to the bullying among youngsters which state legislators around the nation have recently worked so hard to end. This merits similar concern."
An op-ed in today's Washington Examiner outlines some of the worst incidents, and calls for teachers unions to end their habit of silencing teachers.
SRN has covered teachers union aggression and nonunion teacher options repeatedly. For more background information, view the related articles listed below.
