What can teachers and Americans do to hamper the growth of education unions?

A discussion started on our Facebook page about Right to Work and forced unionization recently, so we thought it would be beneficial to suggest two simple things that Americans and teachers could do to help.

1) If you are a teacher, or are about to become a teacher tell your union no thanks (if you have that option) and join the Association of American Educators.

The Association of American Educators (AAE) advances the teaching profession through personal growth, professional development, teacher advocacy and protection, as well as promoting excellence in education so that our members receive the respect, recognition and reward they deserve.

In 1994 a group of nationally recognized educators (AAE Advisory Board) came together with a vision to create a new kind of teacher association – one that focused on professionalism and putting children first.

AAE is America’s fastest growing national, nonprofit, nonunion teachers’ association with members in all 50 states.

AAE offers professional member benefits such as liability insurance and legal protection, professional development, newsletters, scholarships, classroom grants, and a voice on educational issues—but at a fraction of the cost of most other associations’ dues.

AAE does not spend any of our members’ dues on partisan politics, nor do we support or oppose controversial agendas unrelated to education.

2) Make a donation to the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation or the National Right to Work Committee. Both of these organizations stand strong against unions and compulsory unionization. If you can’t donate much, just donate $15, we guarantee you spend that much on going out to some movie that probably benefits some leftist who in turn donates it to a liberal. Consider it a down payment on freedom.

The National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, established in 1968, is a nonprofit, charitable organization providing free legal aid to employees whose human or civil rights have been violated by abuses of compulsory unionism.

The National Right to Work Committee, established in 1955, is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, single-purpose citizens’ organization dedicated to the principle that all Americans must have the right to join a union if they choose to, but none should ever be forced to affiliate with a union in order to get or keep a job.
