Left-leaning ideologues who run the country’s teachers unions accidentally exposed their own biases when they made millions schoolchildren stay home and allowed parents to see the propaganda their militant members infuse in lesson plans.
Teachers’ union leaders tried to indoctrinate children over many years into their left-leaning political worldview.
They believed President Ronald Reagan was worse for the Soviet Union than the 1980s. They taught children that pollution would cause acid rain to burn their skin. Students today are taught that parents don’t have to know if their children were born with certain chromosomes.
The decades of monopolistic control over school boards and leftist lesson plans design have led to teachers’ union leaders becoming more militant.
The Union’s top priorities are to impose unrealistic and unhealthy COVID regulations and teach children to judge people based more on their skin than their content. They also want explicit sexual content made available in school libraries. This content was previously prohibited from meetings of community school boards.
National tests revealed that K-12 math and reading scores have dropped to their lowest levels since the 1990s. The average college entrance test score for America’s 2022 high-school graduates was the lowest in more than 30 years.
A survey by the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) revealed that nine in ten teachers feel schools are too politicized. Another 40 percent of respondents said they may leave the profession within the next two years, and three quarters said that they wouldn’t recommend the profession to others.
Randi Weingarten is AFT President. She’s the perfect person to blame. Weingarten decided that last Wednesday was the best time to take a photo of war-torn Ukraine.
Weingarten opened up makeshift schools for Ukrainian students after threatening to shut down schools across the country because of COVID concerns.
Teachers who were good-intentioned in the past had to resist teacher union propaganda in quiet classrooms. However, a portion their pay went to support a political agenda they didn’t support.
In 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled union dues were political speech and that public employees cannot be forced to support a union financially.
The news spread slowly in the beginning but it is now gaining momentum and teachers are leaving their unions in droves.
California Teachers Association, (CTA), has been undoubtedly the strongest state teacher’s association in the country. It continues to be the largest cash exporter for government union campaigns throughout the country.
Although the rest of America might not see the damage one-party rule has done to California, California’s political influence is still felt in races across America, including Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.
The CTA had 310,000 members before the Janus decision. This ruling allowed teachers to refuse to support radical unions’ political views. Today, it has 280,000. This is a loss of more than 30,000 members and $36 million a year in dues revenues. This money would have been used to fund elected officials who support Big Labor.
Teachers are realizing that their paychecks do not have to support this kind of nonsense. Instead of supporting the leftist lifestyles and extravagant lifestyles of union leaders, they are using the money to fuel cars and buy food.
