Freelance Teachers Cooperative Project
Coming Spring 2021
MyCoolClass.com is a teacher-owned virtual learning platform cooperative. Every teacher has a stake in the company and takes part in the decision making. When the company profits, everyone benefits. There are no shareholders profiting from your labor.
We believe that the voice of every teacher matters and that we all deserve a living wage without discrimination. We seek to create an international collective of teachers and tutors who provide high quality education to their students around the world.
When teachers are paid well, have a stake and a say in the workplace, everyone benefits, especially the student.
Join the #TeacherRevolt!
Help us create an international platform cooperative for teachers today.
It’s time for us to register the cooperative and form our legal entity. We are crowdfunding $20,000 USD to cover legal costs, consulting fees, and to finish customizing the Learning Management System. MyCoolClass.com plans to start accepting membership applications in April, providing we meet our crowdfunding goal. Join the #Teacherrevolt and help us create a better place for students and teachers alike!
We have raised $2,168 USD of $20,000 USD.
CHANGE THE WORLD
Changing Virtual Education
All around the world, teachers are notoriously underpaid, exploited and discriminated against. This is especially true for freelance teachers working as independent contractors for huge online education platforms. While there are many perks to being a freelancer, there are also many disadvantages, such as low pay, no paid sick leave, lack of peer support, draconian rules, and simply not having a say in how business is operated.
MyCoolClass.com has the goal to change this by creating an equal and democratically operated e-learning platform owned by those who produce the labor – the teachers who provide students with education. We believe that the voice of every teacher is important and that we all deserve a living wage without being discriminated against due to our nationality, skin color, gender, age, creed, who we love, or gender identity. We seek to create an international collective of passionate teachers who strive to provide high quality education to their students. As a cooperative, there are no bosses. All teachers have a stake in the company and one equal vote. When teachers have a say in their workplace, they are happier and perform better. When teachers are happy, students learn more and the company prospers.
WHY A CO-OP?
Why a Co-Op?
Cooperatives help balance the massive growth of income inequality around the world by putting wealth back into the community.
Owned by teachers
Worker Cooperatives are owned by the members who produce the labor, not wealthy shareholders who invest capital for profit.
Help the global economy
Cooperatives put money back into the community and out of the pockets of big banks and wealthy investors.
Every member has one equal vote that cannot be traded, bought, or sold.
Regardless of your race, nationality, religion, gender, age, gender identity or who you love, MyCoolClass.com is committed to a diverse international community and hate-free workplace. We have zero tolerance for any bigotry.
