What about other unions?
In all the coverage about teacher quality and tenure, and lengthy due process for teachers who read porn in the classroom while they are not assaulting or underserving children, I never read anything about how teachers’ union protections compare to those in other unions (especially in the public sector). Are there lessons to be learned from other unions? Reforms that have or have not made a difference?
