Alix Freeze: What Teachers Really Think

February 10, 2014

The nation's largest union alternative is growing rapidly, and the American Association of Educators has just released the results of its annual member survey. AAE teachers support school choice, oppose raising taxes to increase education spending, and support giving teachers access to locked, concealed firearms in school after they've taken a training course. Alexandra Freeze, AAE's communications and advocacy director, joins the podcast to explain why her teachers are so different from what we hear about teachers in the media, the growth of the non-union teaching movement, and why it's wrong to pretend that teachers think the same on about education policy.
