On Wednesday, a Texas congressman introduced a bill that would limit the amount of money the federal government gives to teachers’ unions. Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-Texas, introduced the No Federal Funding for Teachers’ Unions Act, which says that “no Federal funds may be given to a labor organization whose members are education professionals.”
It says that an education professional is someone who works for a kindergarten, middle school, high school, or college.
Rep. Jackson told Fox News Digital, “Teachers’ unions have a sad history of putting their own needs ahead of the needs of their students and putting indoctrination ahead of education.”
“Promoting racial curriculums and gender confusion is not in line with my values or the values of the parents, kids, and teachers in my school district. The federal government shouldn’t give any money to groups that use their influence to help Democrats instead of kids and parents.
My bill is a very important first step toward holding corrupt teachers’ union leaders accountable and giving parents back their rights in the school system.” Corey DeAngelis, a senior fellow at the American Federation for Children and an expert on education policy, told Fox News Digital, “The move would be a good first step.”
“There should be no unions in the public sector at all. Taxpayers shouldn’t pay for teachers’ unions, especially since they are a part of the Democratic Party and work to keep kids in bad public schools. The Republicans in the House of Representatives should go even further and pass a law to stop funding the federal Department of Education.
They should also pass laws to get rid of the National Education Association’s federal charter and to let families choose which schools to send their kids to “What he said. Jackson also said that the bill would be an “essential first step” toward holding teachers’ unions accountable.
He told Fox News Digital, “Teachers’ unions have a troubling history of putting self-interest ahead of students and indoctrination ahead of teaching.” “Promoting racial curriculums and gender confusion is not in line with my values or the values of the parents, kids, and teachers in my school district.
The federal government shouldn’t give any money to groups that use their influence to help Democrats instead of kids and parents. My bill is a very important first step toward holding corrupt teachers’ union leaders accountable and giving parents back their rights in the school system.”
The National Education Association, the largest teachers union in the United States, recently tweeted that teachers know best what pupils need to “learn and thrive.”
“Educators love their children and know better than anybody what they need to study and thrive,” said the tweet from the National Education Association’s official Twitter account.

Some people on Twitter agreed with the idea, but others were against it, saying, in so many words, that parents should also be involved in their children’s education.
Relationships between teachers’ unions and parents have gotten worse in recent years. This is especially because school closures caused by COVID-19 have slowed down learning across the United States.
A recent national report card showed that students’ reading scores went down the most in 30 years because they were forced to study at home. At the same time, math scores dropped for the first time in the history of tests done by the National Center for Education Statistics.
Last year, the NEA and the American Federation of Teachers were involved in contentious correspondence with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Americans for Public Trust found letters that show that the two biggest teacher’s unions in the country tried to get last-minute changes to school reopening rules and a slow walk back to school.
