  •  Oh please, teachers unions are the biggest funders (0+ / 0-)

    of school board elections. And then we have these pathetic situations where the public isn't represented. In my home town, the teachers union represents the teachers.......and the school board represents the union. The negotiations are pathetic and the contract is wildly tilted to the job protections of adults as opposed to the academic needs of kids. Thousands of poor brown kids are failing. Progressives shouldn't be defending a system that is hurts kids, especially kids of color.

    •  Not all teachers' unions operate that way. (1+ / 0-)

      Teachers unions and work rules aren't hurting kids; a total lack of proper funding for schools is the culprit.

      How due process and fair work conditions magically damage young people in your world is interesting. Let's try rampant poverty and the constant war on the poor by the rich as the real reason why young children have been failed. You can go peddle your anti-teacher rhetoric off of a cliff.
