This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

Protecting Bad Teachers is a front group operated by Berman & Co. Berman & Co. operates a network of dozens of front groups, attack-dog web sites, and alleged think tanks that work to counteract minimum wage campaigns, keep wages low for restaurant workers, and block legislation on food safety, secondhand cigarette smoke, drunk driving, and more.

Protecting Bad Teachers is a project of the Center for Union Facts, "a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supported by foundations, businesses, union members, and the general public, including citizens of Newark" according to Protecting Bad Teachers' website.[1] However, the Center for Union Facts is really another secretive front group of Berman & Co. for individuals and industries opposed to union activities.

According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, Protecting Bad Teachers "attacks teachers unions in Newark, New Jersey."[2]
