Our Mission:


We, the members of the Badass Teachers Association, reject profit-driven education reform.

BATs Books



The Badass Teachers Association Board of Directors officially supports the Global Climate Strike!

Do you have students in your district that will be participating? Are you planning on attending a local event? Are you incorporating Climate Justice into your lesson planning?

There are different levels at which we can all get involved - the most important thing is to GET INVOLVED!

Our Vision

This is for every educator committed to the struggle for racial, social, and economic justice work. We refuse to be blamed for the failure of our society to erase poverty and inequality, and refuse to accept curriculum, assessments, tests, and evaluations imposed by those who have contempt for real teaching and learning. BATs will promote activism and pro-union work that actively fights against attempts to dismantle public education and for positive, collaborative and supportive work environments.
