Heartland Institute’s School Reform News Uncovers Bullying by Teachers Unions

Published April 27, 2012

A recent report describes how unions have reacted to teachers who don’t fall in line, including publicly shaming them, filing labor complaints about them, and pressuring administrators to fire or not promote them.

Joy Pullmann, managing editor of School Reform News, published by The Heartland Institute – a free-market think tank – compiled the evidence into a 10-page report titled “Bullying Teachers: How Teachers Unions Secretly Push Teachers and Competitors Around.” The Washington Examiner published an op-ed by Pullmann about the report titled “When bullies grow up, they can always run teachers unions.” Read a copy of Pullmann’s report here, and feel free to quote from it with proper citation.
