    he's right. Unions artificially jack up the price of labor, which decreases efficiency and demand. haven't you kind of sort of noticed how unions in the private sector have been shrinking along with the enterprises they have attached themselves to?

    Do you not understand that most teachers are paid like crap? Its not teacher's pay thats the problem, its administrative overhead. However, as CPwill stated Unions have done work to overrate their worth. This does not mean that unions when they were created weren't needed or aren't needed as a buttress to corporate greed.

    What we've seen over the last 20-30years is that profit sharing does not exist outside the top and it has, like a poison, weakened our economic ecosystem.

    do not confuse "pay" with "compensation" - teachers benefits packages are much more lucrative than most private sector ones. Though I agree on the administrative overhead being a hefty cost as well - the problem is that Teachers Unions protect those too, because they have members in administration just as they have members teaching.

    Now all they need to do is pass legislation similar to Alabama's regarding assisting illegal aliens. They will be Golden! All the illegals will head to Chicago or LA.

    LOL. I would prefer for them to be Conservatives who understand why government must be kept on a short, tight leash.

    I am certain they are concerned.

    Next important big step. Get the government completely out of the business of education. It is extra-constitutional. It is dangerous.

    One can only hope. Privatizing education would be even better.
