Thousands of teachers around the country have asked me the exact same question…
“Can I keep my local teachers’ association and get rid of the state and national teachers’ unions?”
Yes, teachers can keep their local and ditch state and national union bullies — if they decertify the entire web of union control and start fresh with their own local associations.
Most teachers appreciate their local associations because locals do the heavy lifting. Yet my $1,000 in annual union dues was divided. The California Teachers Association took $656, and the National Education Association took $187. Our local survived on $157, and when we local leaders asked for accountability from state and national leadership, we got squashed.
State and national unions control teachers in a culture of fear — using intimidation, isolation, and ignorance to keep us captive, so most teachers have no idea how the unions actually spend our dues.
By overpowering the teaching profession, state and national unions have transformed our schools. Their negative impact is felt from outrageous sex education curriculums normalizing anal and oral sex for children, to activist teachers converting children into social justice warriors, to multi-million dollar attacks on school choice.
So teachers, we all hope you will Keep Your Local Association and ditch the bully state and national unions. It’s the best way to protect our kids and regain authority in our schools and culture. Click on “Teacher Freedom” and drop down to “Keep Your Local” to learn more.
