How Teachers Unions Hurt Schools – A New Video From Prager University

Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has admitted that our public school system is broke. He stated that, “It’s obvious the system’s broken.” Stanford Political Science Professor, Terry Moe, identifies the biggest obstacle to improving our nation’s schools — teachers unions. Moe breaks down how teacher’s unions are hurting our schools, and why need to make a change to improve education in this country.

In just five minutes, you will learn: why teachers unions are opposed to the interests of parents and students; why bright, young, motivated teachers are fired first, while older, incompetent teachers are virtually immune to losing their job; and why teachers unions block school choice and won’t allow teachers’ salaries to be contingent upon whether students actually learn.
