I think this is the wrong question. Teacher's Unions don't exist to help ensure high performing schools or student achievement. A teacher's union exists to help its members: the teachers. Which is what they have been doing, and quite well. What is really needed is more accountability from the people who negotiate with the unions. The politicians and school boards. It becomes complicated when unions can elect candidates who then are responsible for the checks and balances imposed on their members. Expecting the teacher's union to worry about the student is like expecting the UAW to worry about the styling, quality, sales and profitability of GM's cars.
