I am a teacher and have never sent in my application to formally join the union (I am forced to pay union dues even though I don't support them). There are several reasons. First, teaching in California is one of few jobs where you have to PAY to stay employed. Case in point: Autism Authorizations. SPED teachers are required to have this if they hold an M/M credential. This came AFTER people have already received their credential and have been working. To stay in their position, they have to obtain this AT THEIR OWN COST. Nice work union. Second, the union is ardently left wing. They do not make any attempt to hide it. If fact, they come into the teachers' lounge and let us (the teachers) know who they, (the union of teachers) are...
