Wisconsin's 3rd largest Teachers Union--DECERTIFIED!

So while SpideyTubby crows about how the UAW got into VW (notwithstanding concerns the plant wasn't doing that well beforehand, as mentioned in the post), he completely ignores this development.

Teachers can still make voluntary contributions to the decertified union, but the KEA has no official status in Kenosha schools.


I wonder what the total contribution will be.

Public sector unions have absolutely no business existing. They add a huge special interest to our government that prevents sensible budgets and cushions our public servants.

This. They've stood in the way of reform, school choice, and performance based wages every step of the way.

The party of special interests disagrees with you. They'd like you to think that all teachers are good, honest people who want what's best for their students. Tenure is just there to help the students.

It's the other guys who are against science and education. How dare they look after the needs of the students! How dare they attempt to couple the best interests of the educator with the best interests of the students through testing, performance based wages, or vouchers!

Good. The very idea of "tenure" in compulsory education is retarded and needs to die. Unions must go to accomplish this.

not a huge fan of unions, but is anyone reading any other articles on this?

This isn't the bellwether it's made out to be here. Not really a huge stand considering the practical implications of what decertification means.

I guess if we're cheering for team red or team blue, these sorts of things really important. But there's really not much beyond the symbolism, which is being magnified or downplayed depending on your sideline.

So long as these headlines satisfy people who want something done, real progress will be even slower while everyone gets distracted by shiny things.

Well for a better group to hold to that desire give Federal and state workers a gander. Lerner got a 73,000 bonus byway of the IRS workers union contract.

No one is really saying this one particular decertification is a game changer. It is interesting though.

Are you saying Act 10 in Wisconsin doesn't implicate the politics there in a serious way or that this one particular instance doesn't?

Tenure for teachers existed long before teachers unionized. The original purpose for unionizing was collective bargaining. All the other bull shite came later.

LOL! Wisconsin's teacher's union was already killed by the governor a while back. Hardly news.

Tenure was NEVER something that applied to 3rd grade teachers until the unions got into the game. It exists to preserve academic freedom at universities.

The Wisconsin unions must take an annual vote?

I can see the 37% immediately joining the largest teacher's union.
