Welcome to the Association of American Educators' online publication, Reform Matters! This education reform-focused publication features both original AAE content and a compilation of the latest news from the growing education reform community.


Feel free to forward this on to colleagues, or encourage them to join our email list. We hope that you will provide us with feedback and consider submitting an article or study for consideration.   

Note: We are proud to be member-driven and only take positions on issues based on member surveys. The studies, articles, and policies showcased in this newsletter have not necessarily been endorsed by AAE; however, by sharing new and innovative trends in education policy, we hope to educate and empower our members by examining new possibilities in education.
Lawsuits with Impact: Watch & Share!
In September, AAE sat down with stakeholders from the monumental Friedrichs and Bain court cases to find out more about how they came to fruition - and how they could fundamentally alter the state of education for educators nationwide.
We want every teacher to be a part of this lively discussion and bring to light the issue of teacher freedom of choice. So when you finish watching this video, share it with your friends and colleagues to help us empower teachers to be a part of this growing movement.

THE LATEST: The Friedrichs case will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court in January. We'll be sending updates on how to get involved in the days and weeks ahead.  

Do you have a personal story about compulsory unionism? Are you passionate about teacher freedom of choice?  Contact AAE and we'll help spread the word to other teachers.
