Our purpose is to help teachers exercise their First Amendment rights to freedom of association without threats or coercion from unions.
We exist for the purpose of educating, equipping, and empowering teachers with the resources and support they need to speak out with their own voices, apart from bureaucrats and the state and national unions steeped in their own, often lopsided and disconnected, political agendas. State and national teachers’ unions have dominated the conversation on education reform, and we believe teachers themselves deserve a place at the table.
Free to Teach (FTT) is an initiative of Americans for Fair Treatment that empowers Pennsylvania teachers to create the best possible environment for their students, their schools, and themselves. At FTT, we work to shed light on issues facing teachers and to provide information, resources, and options. Beyond that, we provide a supportive and diverse network of teachers across the commonwealth who share the same concerns and believe there’s a better way.
