About EIA
Teachers' unions are like any other machine. They're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, it's not my problem.

Established in June 1997, the Education Intelligence Agency (EIA) is a private, for-profit, one-man contract research firm. EIA itself supports no particular program or specific reform but does focus on the inner workings of the teachers' unions. Its clients cover the political spectrum, from conservative public policy organizations to teacher union affiliates themselves. EIA has successfully filled requests for information from organizations and agencies in all 50 states.

EIA provides quick, accurate information to requesters concerning the public education establishment. This is done in a variety of ways:

1) Weekly e-mail communiqués containing the latest news and inside information about public education. EIA currently sends communiqués directly to over 4,000 organizations and individuals in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and overseas. Many more read them through reposting. There is no charge for the e-mail service. The list is never shared with other parties.

2) Periodic reports, essays or handbooks on a neglected education issue. EIA's reports have received extensive coverage in national as well as regional publications.

3) EIA supports itself through contract work and provides raw data on the requested topic (charging by the hour) or provides extensive research and analysis in a finished report (charging by the project). EIA also conducts workshops and lectures on teacher union operations and tactics. Client confidentiality is maintained unless specifically waived.
