Who and what is the Freedom Foundation?
It's hard to believe it, but our successful advocacy for students has attracted political groups who want to stop us. Backed by wealthy corporate interests with an anti-worker and anti-public education political agenda, these enemies are increasingly attacking educators' right to union representation and our freedom to collectively bargain contracts. Freedom Foundation CEO Tom McCabe (pictured) is one of the operatives behind these attakcs.
They claim they’re on the side of school employees and public education, but in reality, they seek to take professional respect and bargaining rights from educators and turn over control of public education to CEOs and the corporate special interests who fund them.
The Freedom Foundation, Choice for Teachers, Opt Out Today, the Washington Policy Center, the Northwest Professional Educators and other anti-union groups exist to weaken us, divide us and limit our ability to speak out for students and public education.
