On another note, DrBooa on another board linked to this series of graphics, where there is some interesting data on Texas and US education:

I'm still mulling over what page 8 means (weak unions vs strong unions and student outcome).


The statement at the bottom is the most significant thing: "Differences in state performance that might be attributed to unions are small compared with effects of poverty."

I could analyze the chart further, but this statement sums it up well. Unions have little impact on the quality of education.
