    And this coming from a guy who somehow manages to be a Democrat, but in no way pro-union.

    (Amazing how watching the UAW's greed demolish your home town can color your judgement, but that's a topic for a different discussion)

    However in this case, while I agree some adjustments to contracts might be in order, the data shows that well unionized, active teachers, on the whole, do a better job of educating.

    And that should count.  It NEEDS to count.  

    Is the system perfect?  Not even in the neighborhood of it.

    Could it be considerably worse?  Sure.  Privatize education and it'll become a numbers game, not an educational system.

    Fix what's actually broken, then get out of the way and let educators educate!
