Charter School Teachers Look to Exit Union

Here is a case of reality hitting you in the face — teachers from Massachusetts Brighton’s Conservatory Lab Charter School look to exit their union. Three years ago, teachers at the school became the poster child for the American Federation of Teacher’s as they undertook a charter school unionization campaign. That’s because the school was the first charter school in the state to unionize.

But after three years, the teachers are expressing frustration with their union who attacks the academic accomplishments of charter schools and are weighing whether to stay affiliated or join a professional teacher’s group that is not a union organization, the Boston Globe reports.

We all know that union bosses are impediments to educational excellence and it appears that reality is hitting the teachers in the face.
