The Wisconsin school teachers protests and attempts to recall Gov. Walker resulted in not only losing the battle but instead helped to further new laws across the US that allow teachers to drop union membership. Now the National Education Association (NEA) and other teacher unions are seeing a decline of those willing fill the coffers of these organization.
As teachers began to look more critically at the NEA and their local, state and regional affiliates many were repelled by their unions being in bed with Democratic Party politicians. Many of them did not like the direction taken by those in control at the unions’ organizations.
