Ten Worst Union-Protected Teachers Contest

In March 2008, the Center for Union Facts launched a summer-long, nation-wide contest to search for the Ten Worst Union-Protected Teachers in America. The contest asked anyone 13 and older to nominate the worst union-protected teachers in America. CUF received over 600 nominations and after identifying — and verifying — the ten worst, each “winner” was offered $10,000 to quit the profession forever.

The contest’s aim was to illustrate how difficult unions have made it to get rid of bad teachers. The contest received significant media coverage which can be viewed here.
