The truth: fact sheets from MEA-MFT

Does teacher tenure protect bad teachers? Does so-called "right-to-work" help the economy? Are public employee pensions breaking the bank?

No, no, and no. But in today's overheated political climate, it's easy to fall prey to misinformation. Right-wing pundits and politicians, corporate CEOS, and others are happy to distort the truth when it serves their interests.

MEA-MFT has compiled the following "Truth About" handouts to help our members and friends sort fact from fiction.

We will be adding more "Truth About" handouts as time goes on. Keep an eye on this page for more.
