Teachers’ Union Expelled from School District

The trouble with education in this country starts and ends with unions. They are out-of- touch museum relics, fitting for a day that used rotary presses to distribute the news, but wildly inappropriate for an age that‘s both wired and wireless.

Unions have prevented, and continue to prevent, much-needed reforms in education, public finance and government. They cultivate a sense of entitlement wholly out of order for the times, which call for more self-reliance and entrepreneurship.  More…

End collective bargaining for government unions

 
The average government worker now receives hourly pay and benefits that are 44 percent higher than the average private sector worker’s. Those high costs are bankrupting state and local governments—and taxpayers—across the nation.But it doesn’t have to be this way. A package of bills being considered by the Arizona legislature would reform this unfair spoils system, protecting workplace freedom, the state’s economy, and all Arizona taxpayers.Nick Dranias of the Goldwater Institute highlighted the stark choice before the Senate Government Reform Committee on Feb. 1, 2012.

200,000 Teachers Freed from Shackles of Forced Unionism

 

On February 28, 2012, By NRTW Committee Staff

It appears efforts to provide teacher’s with the ability to choose or not to choose to join a union has resulted in a remarkable 200,000 teachers deciding not to rejoin their union.

The Education Action Group notes that over the past year, several states – including Wisconsin, Tennessee and Idaho – have passed legislation freeing teachers from the shackles of compulsory union membership.  The results?  ”A new report finds the National Education Association has revised its membership numbers downward – from 3.2 million to just over 3 million.  According to Mike Antonucci of the Education Intelligence Agency website, the hemorrhaging of members is contributing to the NEA’s $17 million deficit, which may force union leaders to lay off employees and cut aid to state affiliates

It Costs $544.28 to be a Non-Union Teacher in Michigan…

By Kay Daly January 18, 2012 5:33 pm

And for Andrew Bulkema, a Michigan teacher with a decade of teaching experience, it is worth every penny to be free from the mandatory political monolith that the teachers union has become for liberal causes. For Bulkema, the compulsory dues in direct support of candidates and causes he could not agree with, especially President Obama, was the last straw.  More…

NLRB To Force Companies To Turn Over Employee Telephone Numbers & E-Mail Addresses To Unions?

Union-backed NLRB Chairman: “We keep our eye on the prize.”

Posted by LaborUnionReport Thursday, January 26th at 8:30PM EST 

Undaunted by the constitutionally-questionable appointment of three members to Barack Obama’s National Labor Relations Board, union attorney and current NLRB chairman Mark Pearce declared in an Associated Press interview that he and his union comrades are continuing their assault on the 93% of private-sector employees who are union-free.

In fact, if Obama’s union appointees have their way, all employees who are targeted for unionization will have their employers forced to turn over their home telephone number and e-mail addresses to unions.  More…

Floundering Education Systems Nationwide

Opinion: For America’s children, education outlook grows only dimmer

By Juan Williams – 01/23/12 05:00 AM ET

 Thirty percent of America’s high school students drop out and never graduate. Fewer than half of the nation’s black and Hispanic students graduate on time from high school.

The scandalous bottom line here is that more than 1 million students drop out of American public schools every year. That works out to more than 6,000 students every day and one student every 26 seconds.

Education in America, particularly big-city education, is in crisis. Historians are already describing the decline of public education as a threat to the nation’s economy and military. And when the tragic scale of harm to racial minorities is considered, the education crisis is aptly labeled as the greatest civil rights challenge of the 21st century.  More…
