Public Education's Last Hope: Independent Teachers' Associations.
Bowman, J. C.
Crisis in Education, p41-42 Feb 1998
To move education forward, the United States needs teachers willing to challenge traditional teachers' associations. Independent teachers' associations, most of which began in the 1950s, were started primarily in response to compulsory union dues, monopoly bargaining, strikes, and the union's overtly political agenda. They support local control, opposition to strikes, freedom to join any professional organization, and nonpartisan politics. (SM)
