Who Should Control Our Public Schools?
Why do teachers’ unions across the country have the power to dictate the terms of school districts’ reopening, while the tax dollars of parents—nearly 80 percent of whom supported in-person instruction—continue to flow towards those districts?
The answer is that, in nearly every state, the heads of public-sector unions have at least some power to force teachers, police officers, firefighters and other public employees into one-size-fits-all contracts that make public services more responsive to the interests of union bosses than to those of the public.
Clearly, parents and voters should be the ones in control of how our public schools are run, not the unions. You can read the full Op-Ed by Mark Mix here.
