Teacher Unions Used Pandemic to Funnel Millions to Divisive Political Groups: Government Accountability Institute


Recommended Posts

"America’s largest teacher unions have funneled millions of dollars to divisive political movements as well as mostly Democratic political candidates, using the pandemic and their political influence to advance policies outside of education—including election reform and COVID-19 policy.

This was among several findings in a new investigation into America’s two largest teacher unions focusing on how the unions “reward insiders, promote political activism, and push a divisive agenda.”

The report reveals that two of the largest and most powerful U.S. teacher unions; the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the National Education Association (NEA), have been using the COVID-19 pandemic to expand both their influence and planned agenda for radical changes to public schools, including pushing critical race theory and transactivism policies while simultaneously dismantling education standards by abandoning basic skills like math and reading."


"“It’s almost like the teacher unions went out of their way, and they’ve, in fact, admitted that their core function now is not to focus on things like pensions for teachers, health care for teachers, smaller class sizes, the things that used to be 20 years ago educational prioritiesl; they now admitted their core function is social and political activism and campaigning,” Eggers said."
