AAE Sounds Off: U.S. Supreme Court Will Hear Friedrichs Case

Big News! USA Today reported
this week that the U.S. Supreme Court may be prepared to strike down laws forcing public employees to pay union dues/fees. "Exciting and encouraging news," said Ms. Karen Cuen, an AAE member and one of the plaintiffs in the case, as it would eliminate requirements that forcibly collect fees from teachers simply for the privilege of having a job in the public schools.
AAE joined an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief in support of the petition for certiorari in the Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association case. As an organization founded on the principles of professionalism and choice, we couldn't be more thrilled about the advancement. Stay tuned to the AAE blog for the latest.
