What We’re Watching: After Chicago: The Future of Teacher Unions

Last week the Fordham Institute presented a debate on the impact of the Chicago teachers’ strike and the future of teacher unions.

Joe Williams, executive director of Democrats for Education Reform, and Terry Moe, professor of political science at Stanford and senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, debated, with Mike Petrilli of Fordham and Ed Next moderating.

As the event web page notes

The Chicago Teacher’s Union approved their new contract last week, but what is the fallout? Did the strike prove Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker right? Will unions continue to slow reform so long as they have collective bargaining rights?
