The suggestion that Charter school teachers having to meet "standards" set by unions is a blatant display of the power unions hold over Labour.
That is a big issue in the US. I've yet to see the word union mentioned in any articles on the Labour issue on Charter Schools.
I was watching the debate on the education amendment bill last night. Unions got a significant mention last night. Essentially charter schools are beyond the reach of the unions, and education is a union stronghold, so the unions are desperate to get rid of them when they can.
Fair enough, tks for the update and correction.
