Teachers Union Exposed runs full-page ad calling for legal action against education laws

On June 12, 2014, the Center for Union Facts ran a full-page ad in USA Today under the name of its front group website Teachers Union Exposed. The ad called for legal action against education laws, citing the court case Vergara v. California, in which some of California’s teacher tenure and firing laws were ruled unconstitutional. It depicted a child inside a trash can and read:

”How can you stop teachers unions from treating kids like garbage? Sue. Unions are protecting incompetent teachers by keeping them in the classroom. This week, a California court ruled that protection of incompetent teachers is unconstitutional. Can’t change the laws to protect kids? Then sue. It worked in California.”[1]
