SCOTUS Winner Proves Teacher Unions Are Evil

By The Ruth Institute Published on October 26, 2023

Rebecca Friedrichs, a twenty-eight-year public school teacher, was forced to fund state and national teachers’ unions whose politics and immoral programs she did not support and that brought harm to her profession, her students, and our country. Although she “opted out” of the political dues for the first ten years of her career, she later joined in order to gain a voice. She served on the union board for three years, only to discover that many union reps agreed with her concerns, but are bullied and silenced, too afraid to speak up to union bosses.

Friedrichs eventually sued the National Education Association (NEA) and the California Teachers Association (CTA). Her lawsuit, Friedrichs v. CTA, which sought to free teachers from forced unionism, was argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2016. Due to Justice Scalia’s death, the Court’s expected 5-4 decision for Friedrichs’ cause turned into an ineffective split decision.

Friedrichs authored Standing Up to Goliath: Battling State and National Teachers’ Unions for the Heart and Soul of our Kids and Country, an expose of unions told through dozens of powerful personal accounts.

Friedrichs is a host at Prager University and founded For Kids and Country, a national movement of citizens uniting to restore our schools and culture.

The Danger of Forgive and Forget

By Faith Hakesley at “Advice from a Survivor.”

Whether you’re healing from sexual abuse, the death of a loved one, a medical condition, or any other difficult situation, you’re bound to hear unsolicited advice. Sometimes, we can let the not-so-great advice slide. Other times, it sticks with us.

I’ve certainly received my share of good and bad advice, one of the most harmful being, “Forgive and forget.” This can be quite damaging, especially to abuse survivors.

Think about those words for a moment: “Forgive and forget.” Now consider: is this advice truly good? Is it helpful? Is it healing?

Put yourself in a survivor’s place.
