Mission Statement

TEACHERAFFAIRS.COM™ is online to effect positive change for teachers.  Through our Website and Message Boards we will endeavor to educate the general public on the plight of teachers, their importance, the challenges they face and the support they need.  This Website will contain the latest breaking news on teachers and will be updated daily.  If it’s positive, noteworthy and about teachers, it will be here in our Teacher News section.  The Message Boards enable teachers from anywhere in the world to educate the general public about their jobs.  It is our belief that once the public understands what teachers deal with on a daily basis, that they will better identify and sympathize with teachers.  Once this happens, we can effect change.  We also support unionization for teachers.

The Message Boards are the most powerful part of TEACHERAFFAIRS.COM™.  The key to making this work and effecting change is having Teachers, Media and the General Public involved.  Teachers post in the Message Boards about issues important to them.  The Media regularly follows content on the Message Boards and uses it as a source for news stories via print, radio and television.  The General Public, in turn, become aware of the issues from the media outlets.  Finally, the General Public applies pressure with phone calls, letters, emails and at the polls to make sure teachers are treated fairly.

Anyone is welcome to access this Website and to contribute on the Message Boards, but it was built for teachers.  We encourage the participation of Teachers, Unions, Politicians, Faculty, Students, Parents, Media and the General Public.  The Message Boards are governed by our Terms of Use and are enforced by Moderators.  This is not a slam site and postings should be professional.  At the same time we understand that teachers need the ability to talk candidly about sensitive issues without the fear of repercussion and that sometimes there might be spirited debates.  Thus, users will be allowed to post with anonymity when the need arises.  However, although you have the right to Free Speech, you are ultimately responsible for what you write.  Please post within our Terms of Use and be careful not to libel (defame) anyone.

This site was created after the incredible success of a similar site for law enforcement officers, LEOAFFAIRS.COM™. LEOAFFAIRS.COM™ is now the Largest Law Enforcement Message Board Site on the planet and one of the Largest Law Enforcement Websites of any type in the world. It has over 500 law enforcement agencies online in 18 countries and generates millions of hits per month. It’s time to duplicate for teachers (and firefighters) what we did for law enforcement officers.

TEACHERAFFAIRS.COM™ consists of a Website and Message Boards with the primary mission of supporting teachers, their rights and causes. All are welcome to access this site and to participate for free, but especially Teachers, Unions, Politicians, Faculty, Students, Parents, Media and the General Public. This Website is designed to furnish you with information, tools and important news that affects you. The Message Boards allow users to talk about issues with anonymity when necessary so there is no fear of reprisal. We do have Terms of Use which are strictly enforced, but the purpose here is to facilitate mature dialogue on important subjects and to effect change. Although we enjoy the freedom of speech, please remember that you are ultimately responsible for what you write…so please try to post within our Terms of Use. Due to today’s climate with teachers’ salaries and pensions being attacked by government entities, we expect passionate and heated debates on sometimes sensitive issues. Allowing this kind of exchange via a medium is often the only way to effect change. The content on this site will be heavily frequented by various media outlets and, if done properly, will educate the public on the issues and allow your voice to make a difference. Thanks for your support!
