Friedrichs appeared Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “The Next Revolution” with Steve Hilton to discuss how corrupt teachers’ unions inject their agenda into every aspect of the education system and beyond. Watch the full interview here.
When asked about the school choice debate, Rebecca stated, “There’s only one reason America does not have school choice teachers’ unions state and national teachers’ unions.”
According to Rebecca, state and national teachers’ unions employ teachers’ dues money to plan, lobby for and enact a radical leftist social, sexual and political agenda. This is despite the fact that, according to three internal studies* conducted by the NEA, most teachers lean conservative. This means most teachers unknowingly fund — via their union dues — the demise of their own beliefs, safety, authority, and classrooms. Rebecca says the best remedy is for Americans to adopt teachers educate them through her book Standing Up to Goliath, and empower them to reject union control.
After the interview, Rebecca’s book Standing Up to Goliath jumped to #1 on Amazon’s best-seller list in all three of its categories — Educator Biographies, Education Reform & Policy, and Labor & Industrial Relations. Due to the influx of demand, Amazon has been forced to delay shipping while awaiting more copies from the publisher.
