Teachers unions would lose access to federal dollars under legislation filed this week by U.S. Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-Amarillo).
“Corrupt teachers’ unions sold out our kids when they lined Democrat politicians’ pockets with campaign contributions to keep students out of the classroom, and later to force masking, despite clear evidence that these decisions were harmful to kids’ educational and developmental growth,” explained Jackson. “Just when we thought corrupt teachers’ unions could not get worse, they pressed the Biden Administration to investigate parents who voice disagreement with their decisions as domestic terrorists. The very people who were supposed to have our kids’ best interest at heart have repeatedly betrayed them.”
To be known as the “No Federal Funding for Teachers’ Unions Act,” Jackson’s legislation would prohibit the federal government from giving financial support to teachers unions.
“It’s time we restore parents’ voices, prohibit corrupt teachers’ unions from using your tax dollars to advance their radical agenda, and send them a clear message: LEAVE OUR KIDS ALONE!”
The measure is cosponsored by Republican U.S. Reps. Louie Gohmert and Troy Nehls of Texas, as well as Debbie Lesko (R-AZ), and Mary Miller (R-IL).
