How did things get so bad that teachers felt the need to unionize in the first place?
Labor unions tend to be reactionary.>>>

The reverse is much more often the case. Unless you're referencing the VN-George Meaney period... which was an historical anomaly.

And teachers unionized because they received miserable pay and had no job security. ( Pretty much the same reasons everybody forms unions.)
