The Public Interest in How Teachers Organize.
Educational Policies Commission, Washington, DC.
Teacher associations must preserve the professional unity between administrators and teachers and their independence from special interest groups in society (such as labor). Affiliations with organizations such as labor, which are not suited to the unique characteristics and needs of public education, would undermine the education of children by creating a lack of confidence in schools among parents, reducing teacher influence on legislators holding different views, causing schools to close during disputes because of teacher union solidarity, and weakening the school administrative structure which was created to serve teachers' efforts on behalf of pupils.
