A Parents Union

Most of you, no doubt, are familiar with the problems created by teachers unions.

Well, in Los Angeles, they're starting a parents union to fight for reform against the status-quo-protecting unionized teachers.

This should be interesting. We've reached a critical point in the debate over education reform where the unions have basically zero credibility with the public but virtually limitless power over state and local legislators. The question is how to bring public sentiment to bear in the face of institutional resistance. A parents union is at least one idea.

Grab some popcorn. Things in LA are about to get good.
