Like many teachers unions around the country, the Wisconsin Education Association Council, or WEAC, would lead us to believe they speak for teachers. They would like us to think they have all the answers and know what is best for students and the teaching profession. They'd like us to believe their members stand united behind WEAC's agenda.
Well, it turns out they're not.
WEAC's moves to stifle reform and recall elected leaders that stand up to the union have provoked teachers and school board members to speak out against the union.
Here, EAGnews.org has given teachers and education leaders an opportunity to sound off on union tactics, their profession and what's best for the children of Wisconsin.
