Don’t miss Allison’s piece on vouchers and how they are great for teachers, too. Allison writes:

“Discussions about school choice program typically focus on students. It is understandable that people are primarily concerned with students, but teachers – certainly an important player in any educational system – are also affected by school choice. And recent research suggests that increased school choice through programs such as Utah’s stalled voucher program benefit teachers just as they benefit students.”

So it’s ironic that a teachers’ union is going all out against a voucher program in Utah:

“Leading the charge against the voucher program is the Utah Education Association (UEA), the powerful state-wide teacher’s union. The battle this fall will be the most significant battle over school choice in years and the UEA is taking no chances – they are calling in backup.”
