Teachers, Unions, and Free Speech

California's Proposition 75, on the November ballot, would require unions to obtain permission from members before spending their dues for political purposes.

In an interesting bit of irony, the California Teachers Association has levied higher dues on its members to campaign against Prop. 75.

A few teachers have filed suit to block the union's campaign spending, as described in this editorial from the Orange County Register.

Umm, I don't know about any extra dues...I guess that I better check with my union on this. I'm with Arnold on the tenure thing even though it is going to affect me personally. It is just the right way to run business.
