Why Opt Out?

  • 1
    NCAE has failed to serve you well

    NCAE claims it empowers teachers and support staff to be better advocates and employees. NCAE employs a staff of full-time lobbyists in Raleigh whose sole mission is to protect public educators and public education. Yet by every measure NCAE has failed its members.

  • 2
    NCAE execs are paid four times the average teacher salary

    In 2012, the average public school teacher in North Carolina earned $45,938. The average compensation of the top seven NCAE executives for the same year was $180,231. Should top NCAE executives receive compensation that is nearly four times that of the average dues-paying North Carolina public school teacher?

    NCAE plays politics with your money

    • The NCAE, NCAE-PAC and the NEA collect contributions from association members and use these contributions for political purposes.
    • The NEA has long known that its political expenditures don't reflect the views of its members. According to the NEA's own "Status of the American Public School Teacher 2000-2001," public school teachers mostly reflect the political make-up of the country.
    • A review of NCAE political contributions indicates the overwhelming majority of contributions (75 percent or more) go to candidates of one political party.
    • The pattern of NEA and NCAE contributions to candidates fails to reflect the diversity of views the leadership claims the organization represents.

    North Carolina already provides employees with free liability insurance

    North Carolina state law automatically provides employees of public and charter schools with professional liability insurance of up to $1 million at no cost to the employee. Teachers and other school staff no longer need the NCAE.

    If a teacher wants to be a member of professional association, he or she can receive better benefits through existing organizations. Find out more by contacting:
