Teacher Unions Imitate Anthem World Council June 18, 2009Posted by federalist in Education, Unions.
Teachers unions, of course, are appalled. They know that “the new computer-based approaches to learning simply require far fewer teachers per student — perhaps half as many, and possibly fewer than that,” Messrs.

For unions, technology is poison.
