Teachers unions, made up of nearly 3 MILLION members, number more than any other union in the US, gets democrats elected in the very reddest of places. Just ask Andy Beshear.
Oh Andy. Your father nearly destroyed Kentucky’s economy when he was governor of the Commonwealth. DESTROYED. So to get the state back into fighting shape, the great people of Kentucky went RED. I mean RED RED for years. Then the 2019 elections came around and Democrats put into place a scheme to replace the conservative Governor Bevin with a radical Democrat, Andy Beshear. The election happened, nearly every office in that election went RED. RED RED. But somehow, through some kind of ‘miracle’, a Democrat got elected Governor out of a sea of red. Statistically, that is not possible…unless the teacher unions went full blown to target the Governor, which is exactly what they did. Teachers unions KNEW the only way to get their agenda in place was to do whatever it took to get Beshear into office simply because of TEACHERS PENSIONS. And those teachers get TENURE.
That is just ONE example of how powerful the teachers unions are particularly with tenured teachers. We get bad teachers because of tenure. We get great teachers because of tenure. And now because of covid, we MIGHT get ANY teachers because the teachers unions do not want in-person teaching, do not want to teach in person but expect to get paid without a classroom, “The CTU [Chicago] has told its members to be prepared to go on strike if the school district retaliates for teachers choosing to continue teaching online — yet neither the retaliation nor strike have happened.” Read the rest here.
Do you know about teacher tenure? Or how powerful their unions are?
Speaking of elections, Fox News reported: “Resident Biden received more contributions from teachers unions than any other candidate during the 2020 election cycle by a wide margin — underscoring the conundrum that may be headed for the White House if those same unions continue to oppose efforts to open schools for in-person learning. Biden’s campaign raked in just over $232,000 from teachers unions during the 2020 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ “Open Secrets” website. The site says the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) “account for practically all” political spending from teachers unions. The second-highest recipient was Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who got $50,996.“
Are you aware that the NEA is a huge proponent of Planned Parenthood and abortion advocating, bargains your child’s privacy rights, backs only radical left-wing Democrat candidates? Maybe you should get to know them better. Because your kids are being taught what the extreme radical left-wing agenda wants them to know by people who will sell them out for pensions, pay raises, and tenure.
