Teacher Supports Non-Union Teacher Organization

A teachers association is glad the state of Texas is turning down Race To The Top money, and a member-teacher supports that policy.

We don’t have teacher unions down here, and don’t have mandatory involuntary membership in those organizations. When I moved down here, I chose to affiliate with a group that is for teachers only (no administrators) and which is a Texas-only organization. I’ve generally been happy with that decision, and this announcement by the Texas Classroom Teachers Association only serves to confirm that I made the right choice.
Imagine--voluntarily joining an organization that supports your own values! We Californians can only dream.
