Episode 200 · January 7th, 2022 · 24 mins 17 secs

About this Episode

Parents of America, it’s happened again. Right after a period in which teachers union officials, most prominently American Federation of Teachers president Randi Weingarten, conducted a preposterous public relations campaign to make themselves the supposed driving forces of post-COVID school reopenings, teachers unions are shutting schoolhouse doors again. The fiercest battle against the most entrenched adversary rages in Chicago, where the Chicago Teachers Union is conducting an industrial action to avoid going to schools to work; joining me to discuss that union, its radical history, and the ongoing state of play facing Chicago parents is Mailee Smith, director of labor policy at the Illinois Policy Institute.
