Teachers’ Unions Put Sex Offenders Before Students

With support from teachers’ unions such as the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers, liberals like Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) are opposing a bill that would help protect school children from the possibility of being exposed to criminals, including sex offenders, in America’s schools.
The unions are also playing the race card in fighting the legislation:

The bill has run into objections from major teachers’ unions like the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers. In letters to lawmakers, their criticisms included concerns that the measure might jeopardize workers’ protections under union contracts.
In addition, the NEA wrote that criminal background checks “often have a huge, racially disparate impact” — a reference to critics’ complaints that minorities make up a disproportionately high proportion of people convicted of crimes.

Advocates for the law have claimed there should be a zero-tolerance policy in schools, especially when it involves sex offenders. That’s difficult to argue against; however, teachers’ unions appear to be more interested in their own power than the safety of America’s school children.

Kyle Olson, with the Education Action Group Foundation told Megyn Kelly Wednesday night on “The Kelly File” that the unions’ objection to the bill proves “unions are out to protect the adults…they are not out for the interests of the children.”

In this day and age, anyone who blindly supports all workers unionization are more interested in ideology than actually achieving the goals unions were originally created to represent. It may sound that way, but I am not saying all unions are a bad thing or are inherently corrupt, but many have lost sight of their… Read more »
