Why Dallas Teachers Unions Must Never Get Power

When I read of a complaint or a threatened lawsuit by the AFT or another union against the DISD or another local school district, I automatically side with the school district. Maybe it’s because I don’t take the time to study the facts of the particular case, so I don’t know if  — one chance out of a hundred, say — the union may be right. Or maybe it is because even our relatively weak Dallas unions have a record of defending incompetence to their last breath.
