For teachers, opting out of union membership is a constitutional right... but it isn’t easy.

Nevada’s teacher unions have lost their focus and have become a roadblock to both teacher and student success. And each year those same unions take millions of dollars in forced dues from teachers who, like us, have had “enough” of their political games.  
 
At Nevada Policy, we're dedicated to providing the resources necessary for Nevada's teachers to exercise their right to drop union membership and focus on what’s really important: educating our children.  One resource is our newly updated Teacher Choice website NVteacherChoice.com, where we give teachers the tools they need to leave their union during the narrow two-week window in summer (July 1st – 14th) where they can “opt-out” of paying the union hundreds of dollars in forced dues.
