Teachers Unions: What’s At Stake For You?

Crossing Party Lines

Location: Online

Teachers’ unions have been around for more than 150 years in the U.S. and in that time the education landscape has changed drastically.

But a “teachers union” isn’t just about teachers. Most Americans care about their effects: parents who want the best education possible for their child, taxpayers who want to see results for the amount they pay in, school districts who have to bargain for teacher salaries and protections, and state and local politicians who want to protect their own image. We all have a stake in the public education system, with different roles and different goals and needs. What’s at stake for you?

Join us at this meeting as we look at our own roles and explore what we feel is most important in education and how those interests sometimes conflict.

Note that this meeting will not be about the general value or relevance of unions. These questions can be explored in a future meeting.

Join the Crossing Party Lines discussion and have a voice in our Nation’s Conversation! People of all views are welcomed, appreciated, and heard.

Please do your best to arrive at the beginning of the meeting – once we are in breakout rooms and the conversations have started, the meeting doors close to new arrivals. The breakout rooms open (and the doors close) approximately 15 minutes after the hour.
