Arne Duncan weighs in on unions and charter schools. From his speech at the Education Writers Association:
“Twenty-six states cap the number of charters and 10 other states have no charters. The President has called on every state to lift charter caps. And where unions are behind these efforts to impede charters we should certainly call them out but we shouldn’t demonize unions or blame them for all of the problems in education.”
