Video: Teacher challenges teachers’ unions

Video: Teacher challenges teachers’ unions Editor-in-Chief Brian Calle interviewed Rebecca Friedrichs, a 25-year Orange County school teacher. She is tired of the California Teachers’ Association and its parent union, the National Education Association, taking her money without her consent for their political agenda. She’s going to take her fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    She should NOT be quoting Alito, big mistake. The only way she could make it worse would be to quote Thomas

    Rebecca Friedrichs name and face are on this lawsuit. Whose money is behind it?

    “The main plaintiff, the Christian Educators Association International (CEAI), firmly opposes reproductive rights and marriage equality “*

    ” CEAI also supports school voucher programs and the teaching of Creationism – also causes championed by some of Prop. 32′s supporters, who saw unions as an obstacle to imposing their political will on California when it came to these and other issues.”

    It appears to be some of the same big conservative donors behind prop 32 who, frankly, could care less about her “freedom of speech” or “right to work”.

    Strange bedfellows indeed.
