What began as one of the nation's largest and most publicized pieces of bi-partisan legislation championed by then President George W. Bush and unlikely liberal ally, the late Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) has produced mixed results and long delays in reform for American students and teachers.   Continue Reading...

New Report: Status of Charter School Unionization
posted by: Alix | December 09, 2011, 10:21 am
A new report by the Center on Reinventing Public Education at the University of Washington sheds light on the status of charter school unionization nationwide. In a climate where charter schools laws are changing dramatically and teacher union membership is declining, the prospect of charter schools unionizing has become a very real threat to the flexible, innovative environments these schools were meant to cultivate. This report attempts to analyze the status of unionization by examining why teachers unionize and the diverse collective bargaining agreements of unionized charters, however it misses the mark in addressing the disconnect between the charter movement and bargaining agreements in general.   Continue Reading...

As we explore new avenues for teacher preparation, for-profit alternative certification programs have caught on and are growing exponentially in states across the country.   Continue Reading...

Teachers Taking Second Jobs at Record Levels
posted by: Alix | November 15, 2011, 01:20 pm
In the wake of budget shortfalls and traditionally low salaries, teachers are taking on second and third jobs in record numbers, the Associated Press reports.

With the federal government repeatedly coming to the rescue, regardless of need, a new report for the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) examines the real numbers behind teacher jobs and reports of massive lay-offs.   Continue Reading...

The question known as "Issue 2" will ask voters to either accept or reject a sweeping collective bargaining law that Governor John Kasich signed in March, less than three months after his election day. Tomorrow, Ohioans will go to the polls to vote on the referendum, a case study in the near nationwide debate over union power and the sustainability of the current collective bargaining system.   Continue Reading...
