EdNext Podcast: Teachers Unions Shaping Reopening Decisions

Organized labor’s public-sector power survives a Supreme Court decision

A professor of political science at City College of New York-CUNY and senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, Daniel DiSalvo, joins Education Next Editor-in-chief Marty West to discuss the durable clout of teachers unions following the Supreme Court’s Janus decision that had been predicted to weaken the unions. He also discusses whether New York City could be on the verge of its first teacher strike since 1975.

Teachers Unions in the Post-Janus World,” by DiSalvo and Michael Hartney, is available now.

The EdNext Podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud, Stitcher and here every Wednesday.
