AAE Member Survey: 2015 Workforce & Pension Policy Survey

AAE members sound off on some of the most debated workforce and pension issues facing our education system. Poll results show forward-thinking stances toward labor reform, particularly with regard to the changing profession and collective bargaining.

With policymakers considering sweeping changes to the profession, it's critical that educators' opinions and experiences are taken into account as these labor reforms are debated and implemented. As a member-driven organization, AAE brings credible teacher voices to the policy table, providing invaluable input from professional educators in classrooms across America.

AAE was thrilled to celebrate National Employee Freedom Week to highlight options for teachers nationwide. This year over 100 organizations from 42 states joined our diverse coalition committed to freedom of choice!

"Freedom of choice for teachers is at the heartbeat of why AAE is growing as a non-union alternative to teacher labor unions... Our organization is adamantly opposed to any policy where teachers are forced to join - or pay fees to - a private organization just for the privilege of taking a position in a public school."
