Chicago has, we could end reform and take education back. States who already have unions in place should be doing this already and states without unions, well, I don't know. I wouldn't work in education without a union, so if I lived in those states I'd be doing something else. But states with unions have no excuse not to do this.

In Colorado, Jefferson County teachers united and made a giant difference, getting a reform school board recalled and getting rid of merit pay along with it. But they have a union.

If you don't have a union, nothing will get fixed until and if that changes.
