 About the Book 

Renowned education expert and former collective bargainer Myron Lieberman argues that the once-great teacher unions, the NEA and the AFT, have become the primary obstruction to educational change in the United States. In a detailed catalogue ofMoreRenowned education expert and former collective bargainer Myron Lieberman argues that the once-great teacher unions, the NEA and the AFT, have become the primary obstruction to educational change in the United States. In a detailed catalogue of charges, he reveals how these unions suppress reform, divert taxpayer money to partisan politics, and stifle the views of some of their own members in favor of their extreme agenda. He exposes the complicated financial and political dealings of these unions, blowing the whistle on PAC contributions, deceptive accounting practices, PTA domination, and more. Asserting that there is another way, Lieberman proposes local-only unions that would bargain with their districts but not lobby the states or Congress.With the NEA and the AFT negotiating a merger for 1998, no one concerned about the future of education in America can afford to ignore Liebermans message.
