Students versus Teachers

In yet another two examples, teachers' unions are doing their best to crack down on innovation and efficiency. They have no problem with New York or Baltimore's many, many failing schools - only with the cities' few successful ones.

Is there still any doubt that school freedom - chartering, vouchers, school choice - is the best route to improving education among the poor? And if "education is the civil rights issue of the twenty-first century", doesn't that make the United Federation of Teachers the new Jim Crow?
