Teachers are striking in Chicago, at a very interesting time for organized labor generally and teachers unions specifically. In the wake of a politically huge loss in Wisconsin and declining support even among many Democrats, is this the final union stand? What effect might it have on the presidential election? And might the hobbling of teachers unions finally put American education on the path to success?

In this month's e-Briefing, Neal McCluskey will answer these questions and more as we discuss the state of American education and the future of teachers unions.

This special online-only series is an opportunity to hear from Cato's policy staff. Please note that it is not necessary to download any software to watch the briefing online; no reservation is necessary.
