Another School Board Takeover?

Teacher union officials in Downers Grove, Illinois, are planning to pack the school board with union-friendly candidates. If this happens, as on so many other school boards, the power of teacher union officials will be sitting across the table from each other during contract negotiations.

Glenn Minnis has the story in the DuPage Policy Journal.

Two former teachers’ union presidents have launched campaigns to capture seats on the Downers Grove Grade School District 58 school board.

If they are successful, it is possible that former teachers union members and officers will control the board.
