Unions have lost the war of ideas

With the upcoming nationwide release of the education documentary “Waiting for Superman” by director Davis Guggenheim (Inconvient Truth) – which takes a critical look at the failure of American public education – Dr. Jay P. Greene (University of Arkansas) and Dr. Greg Forster (Kern Family Foundation) have announced that the unions have officially lost the war of ideas on education.

It is only a matter of time before the education unions (which influence more than just education) are replaced with professional service organizations that treat teachers like professional adults rather than cannon fodder.
