Question

Love the show gentlemen. Question for Saagar. What’s your beef with teachers unions? I’ve heard you mention them negatively a couple of times recently. I’m an active member of my teachers union and while I do think they have their flaws (particularly with the recent embrace of culture wars) I do think they are overall a force for good in education. While we do fight for wages and benefits for our members, most recently the battles have been mostly for increased resources, smaller class sizes, less testing, etc. In my view, the major issue with teachers unions in the past was tenure, but most states have significantly reformed their tenure systems in recent years. I ask because I believe that you would have a thoughtful and nuanced view from the other side of this issue.

Thank you again for a great show
