The Role of Teachers’ Unions in Education – R. Weingarten

Weingarten, Randi. Interviewed by Conan, Neal. October 19, 2010. National Public Radio. “The Role of Teachers’ Unions in Education.” http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130675529&ft=1&f=1013

Randi Weingarten, the President of AFT, answers questions about evaluations, tenure, merit pay, and making teachers part of the solution in fixing education. From the interview,

“…when you look at the high performing nations, when you look at the high performing states, the notion of teachers having a voice in a collective way, the notion of teachers fighting for equity for kids, the notion of teachers fighting for the tools and conditions that they need, is something that actually, long term, helps in education.”
