Are Teachers Unions Anti-Teacher?

This guy calls it exactly as I see it--which might explain why we're both on the board of directors of the California Teachers Empowerment Network.

Excellent piece, Larry.

Darren, I really enjoy your blog.
This article does a great job of explaining my frustrations with the unions. I'm agency fee only, but wish I didn't have to pay anything at all. I firmly believe that the unions should not be involved in politics (especially when the issue is not education-related). Even if I agreed with them politically (which I don't, most of the time), it's not their place.

If the union were such a great deal, they wouldn't have to force me to pay them money.
