Dues Clues: Covering How Unions Spend Teachers' Money
Teachers unions are still a political powerhouse in many states, and even in right-to-work states where they have less influence unions still collect dues money from teachers and spend it on a variety of activities. As part of the EWA Summer School Webinars, we'll talk with reporters from The Hechinger Report and GothamSchoolsabout their joint project examining where teachers' unions are focusing their substantial resources.
We're also going to share something new with reporters - the EWA Story Lab, a formula for getting started on digging into the financial activities of teachers' unions in your own community. You'll come away with a solid blueprint for localizing the issue for your own readers, as well additional teachers' union story ideas you are encouraged to take and make your own.
The webinar will be held Thursday, July 11 at 1 p.m. Eastern time. Sign up now to reserve your spot!
