AUTHOR

Berube, Maurice R.

SUMMARY

In a landmark contribution to the education literature, Maurice Berube examines the political activities of the two teachers' unions--the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers AFL-CIO (AFT) during the last three decades. The first scholarly study of its kind, Teacher Politics argues that teachers' unions have become the most powerful political constituency in the nation. Through effective lobbying arms seeking favored legislation and political machines supporting local, state, and national candidates with manpower and money, this force of 2.5 million teachers is changing American educational politics. As Berube convincingly demonstrates, teacher unions have been reasonably effective in their political and legislative endeavors and, through their enormous resources, have become the chief representatives of education in American politics.Berube, Maurice R. is the author of 'Teacher Politics: The Influence of Unions, Vol. 26 - Maurice R. Berube - Hardcover' with ISBN 9780313256851 and ISBN 0313256853.
