Teachers: Tell Us Your Story
The average teacher in America makes $52,000. That is chump-change in comparison to the American Federation of Teachers’ executive leadership. AFT President Randi Weingarten makes more than $540,000 in total compensation annually. In fact, across the entire AFT national office, the average salary was roughly $100,000.
It’s worse than one-percent pay for union bosses. Numerous AFT local officials—including union presidents in the major cities of Washington, D.C. and Miami-Dade County, Florida—have stolen hundreds of thousands of dollars in member dues money and gone to jail. And a huge chunk of member dues money that doesn’t go straight into the pockets of union bosses goes to politicians: The AFT has vowed to spend upwards of $20 million on politics in 2014 alone.
Randi Weingarten is arguably the nation’s most hostile opponent to education reform. America’s children, parents, and teachers deserve better.
The education crisis in America is real and it’s time for the public to realize who is at fault.
