The most powerful force for failure and the status quo in education today are the teacher union officials who use their monopoly bargaining power to thwart even the simplest reform in the government school system. Things are so bad that the liberal producer of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth has produced a movie about America’s education system and Big Labor’s efforts to stymie reform. It’s called Waiting for Superman. This awaited movie comes on top of another pro-reform documentary “The Lottery.”
