Schools should not be controlled by political machines. The K-12 education system must prioritize the needs of students, rather than regularly cave to the relentless demands of unionized government employees. In order to truly improve our nation’s educational outcomes, we must expose and defund teachers unions. These powerful unions do not represent the committed classroom teachers children adore and do not prioritize students’ needs. They advance political agendas that prioritize activism over academics and frequently close schools with strikes in flagrant displays of political power. 

Petition Text:
Educators, parents, and students deserve better than a K-12 education system controlled by unions and the officials they elect to do their bidding. I support policies that diminish teachers unions’ political power.
