The Teachers' Unions.
Haar, Charlene K.
Crisis in Education, p39-40 Feb 1998
Teachers' unions are formidable foes of meaningful education reforms. Their control of education results from nearly four decades of political power during which they have pressured lawmakers and school board members to shape education policies, laws, and contracts in their favor. The resulting frustration of long-ignored parents is manifesting itself in the profusion of charter and for-profit schools. (SM)
