In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we listen in as Research Fellow Heather Kays joins the Freedom Foundation’s Freedom Daily Podcast with host Jamie Lund. Kays joins the podcast to discuss education policy and the top five reasons teachers unions must change.
Kays and Lund discuss an article Kays wrote on the issue of teachers unions and how they negatively impact education. Kays says while there was a time and a place teachers unions made sense, now they have more power than is reasonable and are redundant since job protections laws now exist for everyone. Lund and Kays also discuss education policy in Washington state, where teachers unions have a huge amount of power.
