(VIRTUAL) Back to School vs Teacher Unions
September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
AIER’s Bastiat Society will host a special regional virtual event for all of our US Chapters.
Corey DeAngelis, Director of School Choice at Reason Foundation will join AIER Senior Research Fellow Phil Magness for a conversation about the correlation between the strength of teachers’ union and the return to in-person schooling.
School closures have affected over 55 million K–12 students in the U.S. since March as the nation deals with the coronavirus pandemic. Although numerous private schools and day care centers have adjusted to the pandemic and reopened, many public school districts and teachers unions are fighting to remain closed in the name of safety. In fact, 85 percent of the country’s 20 largest public school districts have already announced that they will not be reopening schools for any in-person instruction as the school year begins.
This event is open to everyone in the United States who currently attends Bastiat Society events, or is interested in joining.
