‘Historic Day for American Unions’: Los Angeles Teachers Strike Earns Victory for Labor, Public Education

January 24, 2019

My sense is that the current generation of teachers is fed up with more than the suppressed wages and disrespect they feel when Boards appoint bankers as “CEOs” of a school system: they are tired of being treated like automatons who “deliver” education to passive “customers” who need to pass standardized tests designed by faceless psyshometricians many of whom have never stood in front of a classroom full of children. The reform movement may not be boosting test scores, but it is awakening the rank-and-file teachers to the need for union representation.
