If a year of pandemic homeschooling has taught us anything, it is how much power teachers’ unions hold over public education and its administration. Parents and community members are frustrated by closed schools and sub-par remote learning, and they are becoming even more frustrated by school districts who can’t seem to get their teachers on board with increasing learning time for their children. Even better-off parents in affluent white communities are learning the teachers run the show. What practical actions can parents take to be seen as equally as powerful as teachers’ unions?
