Naming Names: America’s Schools’ Problems Lie with Teachers’ Unions

Taking on the unions is hard but NJ did it and won.

In his 2007 book, Outrage, Dick Morris said it best: “There’s nothing wrong with America’s schools that breaking the power of the teachers unions wouldn’t cure.”

Few have had the courage to put it that directly. Our organization’s similarly blunt language puts a target on our back, but when you deal with organized labor, you know that comes with the territory. Expecting unions to act like professional organizations is like expecting the government to be frugal. It’s not in their DNA.
