15 Largest Teacher's Unions in the United States                             By Jack Flynn - Mar. 4, 2021

In many ways, teachers are the roots of any country. They educate our children, watch them while we’re working, and provide mental and moral support for them.

In the United States alone, there are roughly 3.2 million full-time teachers and approximately 130,930 K-12 schools across the nation.

With that in mind, it’s no surprise that there are massive teachers’ unions all across the US, designed to keep teachers protected and provide them with valuable resources. In fact, nearly 70% of all American teachers belong to a teachers’ union.

So who are the largest teachers’ unions in the US? To answer that, we’ve gathered a list of the top 15 largest teachers’ unions, based on their total number of members.

Keep in mind that the National Education Association (NEA) and American Federation of Teachers (AFT) dominate here, so this list includes many of their state-level affiliates.
