Emancipating the Schools

Kirk, Russell
February 1977
National Review;2/18/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 6, p208
The article focuses on issues concerning compulsory unionizing of teachers in the United States. It is reported that in forty states, public-school teachers, like other public employees, lawfully can organize themselves into unions or similar associations. A New York court has chastened the New York City teachers' union, headed by the famous Albert Shanker, who also is national president of the American Federation of Teachers. Because of the union's previous disobedience of state laws and court orders, the court has deprived it of the "check-off" privilege. The article also discusses the significance of the decision of the Supreme Court in the case of City of Madison, Joint School District, vs. Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission.
