Fox News Covers Big Win in Ghost Teachers Case!-By the Commonwealth Foundation

Dear CF Friend,

Kids and taxpayers won a major victory in the fight against ghost teachers in Reading School District!

This week, as detailed by Fox News, “The Reading Education Association, the union at the center of the controversy, has agreed to a memorandum of understanding with Reading School District to reimburse the school district for all future costs,” for the teachers they pull from the classroom to work for the union full-time.

From 2011-2016, the financially struggling district paid nearly $600,000 for ghost teachers that worked for the union while receiving taxpayer-funded salaries, pension credits, and seniority.

No more.

This unethical use of taxpayer funding was exposed when the Fairness Center, on behalf of their clients Americans for Fair Treatment, filed a lawsuit to end ghost teaching in the district. While we celebrate their big victory, it’s important to note that more than 20 percent of Pennsylvania school districts still authorize ghost teachers in their teacher contracts.

Legislation pending in the General Assembly—SB 494 and HB 164—would tackle the problem of ghost teaching statewide.

To find out if your school district could still be haunted by ghost teachers, visit: commonwealthfoundation.org/ghost.

Thanks,

Elizabeth
