Right to Work Works for Teacher Freedom

Right to Work laws are attributed to a decline in teacher union membership, according to a 2016 survey.  Nancy Hanover has the story on the World Socialist Website.  Teachers should be free to join, or refrain from joining any labor union in order to obtain or keep their jobs.

The percentage of US public school teachers participating in unions has dropped by 9 percent since 1999-2000, according to the 2015-2016 National Teacher and Principal Survey. Today, 70 percent of elementary or secondary teachers in public schools are union members, down from 79 percent in 1999-2000.
