Hoover senior fellow Terry Moe discusses teacher union power

Eric Hanushek and Terry Moe, Hoover senior fellows and members of the K–12 Education Task Force, discuss Moe’s recent book on teacher union power titled Special Interest. Moe’s analysis pinpoints the self-interest of unions that leads them to block many education reform ideas. He concludes that “reform unionism” is unlikely to lead to any major policy changes and that improving schools requires curbing the power of unions.
