Politicians refuse to acknowledge parents are the primary stakeholder in their child’s education. The federal government deploys resources to investigate parents who attend their community’s school board meetings. Unions and national associations characterize concerned parents as domestic terrorists. But teachers themselves are increasingly saying enough is enough.
Here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Freedom Foundation is being contacted by countless educators weekly speaking out against their union’s politicization of the education system, the treatment of parents and the failure to provide them with the means to properly educate their students.
The Freedom Foundation has listened to these educators and their concerns. And we’ve spent the past several weeks hosting informal teacher roundtables across Pennsylvania to inform them about their constitutional rights to resign their union membership and cancel dues deductions from their paychecks.
We’ve already held nearly 10 such events, with several more scheduled over the coming months. We will continue to help these educators break free, assist them in taking back their power, and give them a voice to provide a sound education without interference from their union.
To date, the Freedom Foundations has helped hundreds of Pennsylvania teachers opt out of their union, the Pennsylvania State Education Association.
