How did things get so bad that teachers felt the need to unionize in the first place?

Labor unions tend to be reactionary. Happy workers don't unionize. The assault on schools and education has been going on for decades now and the union bashing aspect of it is just the latest RW craze.

The next time you hear someone say something like the old "Those that can, do; those that can't teach" you have my permission to bop them on the head. (Not really, of course, but you get my drift)
