MADISON, Wis. – EAGnews has produced a series of short interviews with Wisconsin teachers and school board members in an effort to tell their side of the story. Despite its appearances of unity, the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), the state’s largest teachers union, does not speak for everyone in education.
In the coming days, EAGnews will be releasing the web ads and they will be found on our Teachers Speak page.
Here, outspoken union critic Kristi Lacroix – herself a forced dues payer – describes the union racket she sees, going so far as to call teachers a “filtering system” of tax dollars into union coffers.
