In the News: Is This Supreme Court Decision The End Of Teachers Unions?

The Supreme Court ruled Wednesday in Janus v. AFSCME that workers who choose not to join public sector unions cannot be forced to pay agency fees to the unions. What will this mean for teachers unions?

NPR’s Anya Kamenetz and Cory Turner consider some possibilities in an article that draws on research by Bradley D. Marianno and Katharine O. Strunk  that was published recently in Education Next.  Marianno and Strunk analyzed what happened in Wisconsin and Michigan after unions lost the power to collect agency fees.
