Covering Teachers Unions -- A Balanced Perspective?

By Alexander Russo — May 01, 2007 1 min read

“The contract of your local teacher union may be the single biggest influence on what happens in schools,” opens this new report from the Hechinger Institute on covering teachers unions. “Find the tools to understanding these complex documents in our primer on Covering Teachers Unions.” (pdf)

Eduwonk says (jokingly, I think), “I don’t see why this is so complicated that we need a guide, it’s all about the kids you know.” No word yet from the NEA or AFT, though I’m imagining there’ll be some criticism of substance or tone.
