Teacher Union Reform? Unlikely
CEAFU Key Leader Larry Sand, President of California Teacher Empowerment Network (CTEN), has gathered opinions from top experts on teacher union officials, and written a an eye-opening article on teacher union reform and the likelihood of happening. Writing for the Unionwatch.org, Larry once again shoots his arrows with impeccable aim, and shows Right to Work laws will work to give all workers freedom from forced dues.
Stryer believes that the younger union members aren’t going to put up with their stodgy old out-of-touch, anti-reform elders.
I wish he was right, but history has shown otherwise. Attempting to placate younger teachers and the general public, union leaders have for some time now been pledging to engage in reform, raise teaching standards and, in general, bend and change with the times. But when push comes to shove, the same old agenda remains in place.
