Unions vs. School Districts: Rhode Island edition
Not sure that the teachers themselves are the problem, but it's a bold move to fire every single teacher at a high school. In a world of marginal movement, change rarely comes in large doses so it'll be interesting to see where all this settles. I'd like to think that it would lead to some market based efforts to improve the failing school district, but I can't help but to think that this situation, in the end, will be a net gain for the teacher's union.
