National Employee Freedom Week (NEFW) is a national campaign aimed at educating teachers and other employees about their options regarding union membership. NEFW was co-created by AAE and the Nevada Policy Research Institute (NPRI) because labor unions like the NEA don’t inform their members of their legal rights to opt-out of membership, leaving millions of teachers and other employees completely unaware that they have options.

Navigating the Murky Waters of Reciprocity

There was a time when educators could count on being granted their license and then spending the rest of their career in a single state, district, or even school.  More and more often this is no longer the case.  As the economy changes, the teaching force continues to evolve.  This is amplified by the fact that the distribution of teachers is not even across the country.  While many communities, mostly urban, are experiencing shortages of teachers, others have a surplus.  Teachers in areas with a surplus may well move to an area with a shortage, gain experience, and then apply in their desired state once they are more established.

posted by: Garry | July 16, 2013, 04:20 PM

Following an eventful 2013 annual conference, the NEA's official membership numbers have hit the internet. According to the Education Intelligence Agency, the NEA has lost over 9% of its members nationwide. The 2011-12 school year absorbed the sharpest decline, with almost 104,000 fewer members in the ranks from the previous year.

One thing on which everyone in the education community can agree is the fact that effective teachers are the key to the overall success of our school system. In light of this consensus, the Department of Education has spent the past several years studying the behavior of new teachers and their career paths, of which the findings were released last week in an ongoing study. In an effort to understand the typical career journey of a new educator, the study tracks 2,000 teachers as they begin their teaching careers and follows their behavior patterns as they continue in both elementary and secondary settings.   Continue Reading...
