Fall 2010 | Education Next
In the Wall Street Journal, Stephanie Banchero notes that, while significantly outspent by teachers unions, Democrats for Education Reform and Stand for Children have spent about $3.5 million on local campaigns in an effort to challenge the power of unions. The two education groups support reforms like overhauling teacher tenure and charter schools. Mike Antonucci wrote about campaign spending by teacher unions in the Fall 2010 issue of Ed Next.
