by Eric Hanushekvia EducationNext
Wednesday, November 13, 2019

The nation is stuck with a bad equilibrium in terms of teacher salaries: salaries are insufficient to attract new teachers who can fuel improved schools and yet they are not even high enough to satisfy current teachers. One result has been uncompromising rhetoric replacing viable solutions, and political responses that leave us in a worse position. The Chicago teachers’ strike continued the strife that played out last year from West Virginia to Los Angeles. Sequential appeasement of these outbreaks of union combativeness and teacher frustration will almost certainly not help the students and will likely make teachers worse off in the long run.

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

Sometimes a president has to step out on a limb and do something he knows is needed and is right, even though his political advisors say otherwise. That is what President Ronald Reagan did in 1987 at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin when he demanded “Mr Gorboachev, tear down this wall.”
