Bravo to Kurt and other teachers to take this national stance of resistance to the corrupt and corrosive NEA. God bless their efforts. Please spread this around.

*******************************************

To Teacher Unions of the United States,

This letter is to inform you that you are on notice from concerned teachers across the United States to stop using member dues to finance political actions of any kind for either party, Republican or Democrat. This includes local and state teacher unions, as well as the National Education Association. Unless serious changes are made at every level, you will lose a significant part of your membership by August 2021.

We believe public teacher unions are not fostering a true diversity of teacher opinions, beliefs, and values. One result of this is that citizens in our community tend to look at all teachers as one ideological brand. This is not so, and part of the purpose of this letter is to make that clear to all citizens.

We also believe people should be informed and alarmed that the current trend in many school districts across the country, working in concert with our powerful teacher unions, is stifling dissenting voices. We see this in equity committees that are currently setting up policy structures in American public schools. The name “equity” has been carefully chosen to present an illusion of equality and fairness, but they are just the opposite.

Rather they promote social control and imposing a one-sided political ideology. This ideology is manipulating and bullying educators, and your children, to turn against traditional values like love of country and flag, the Constitution and Bill of Rights, law enforcement, and even the value of the traditional nuclear family. These are all under serious attack, and we can no longer, in good conscience, be part of this assault.

All citizens need to know that teacher in-service training for improving academics is rapidly being replaced by courses dealing with “group identities,” “diversity,” and “equity.” This is in large part due to the pressure our unions are putting on school districts across America. And we would add, this is the same pressure currently keeping students isolated at home instead of at school, regardless of spiking youth depression and suicide rates.

We encourage every American to go to nea.org or their state teacher union website and see how political our unions are. Just scroll down the menu and look at the headings. Then contact these unions and let them hear your voice.

As teachers, we embrace the idea of the uniqueness of every individual no matter what color, creed, or gender, and we reject the union notion of grouping people. This trend is exclusive rather than inclusive. Please help us push back on a madness that will ruin our schools and eventually our country. Whether a teacher or a citizen, please promote this letter and cause.

Sincerely, Concerned Public School Teachers of America
