Teachers’ unions use children as bargaining chips, intimidating legislatures into giving them endless political power. So what do parents and teachers think of them when they can be honest?
Teachers’ unions and city officials are giving this charter school in New Bedford, Massachusetts, a hard time despite the fact that children are thriving.
The prevalence of remedial college courses represents an obvious failing of our K-12 public school system. Increasing school choice could be a solution.
Every state is now essentially a right to work state. It’s not an overstatement to say this ruling is a death knell for unions as we know them, and will dramatically change Democratic politics.
Barring extreme circumstances, my employment is guaranteed, yet I cannot receive any performance-based raises or bonuses.
When I see a giant rat with red eyes and foul yellowish fangs, my knee-jerk response is: These are not the good guys.
Here’s what I learned about how schools manipulate kids for politics when I asked several parents to share experiences learned during the Oklahoma teacher walkout.
Democrats and their allies among the teacher activists are following the playbook outlined by Saul Alinsky in ‘Rules for Radicals.’

Two of Colorado’s largest school districts are engaging in very public fights over the future of K-12 education. Their outcomes will affect families across the country.
Act like teachers who would like to educate my children, not pure political activists.
What really offends critics is not that DeVos said historically black institutions offer options to children, but that Trump administration policies threaten Democrats’ political monopoly on the black vote.
Now that Betsy DeVos has been confirmed, it’s time to offer her realistic advice that does some justice to the legitimate concerns about her nomination on both sides.
The cumulative debt for all public pension systems is at $5.599 trillion, or $46,884 per household. Most is for teachers, whose unions have for years resisted improvements for kids.
Donald Trump’s pick for education secretary, Betsy DeVos, answered an array of preposterous questions from a bunch of unserious people. It’s a reminder that politics is often tragedy.
