Has the NEA Seen This?


Wanna know what a real teacher's union does with its power? Check out Mexico's National Education Workers Union, which accumulated serious leverage during that nation's 71 years of one-party rule. According to the WaPo, "The trade union, the largest in Latin America, has created what critics describe as a monstrous system of perks and patronage, including a practice that allows teaching positions to be inherited and sold for cash."

You don't have to show up to teach class, either.
