"A lot of otherwise liberal people really hate teachers' unions. I've been wondering why they're so singled out for contempt. It struck me last night that perhaps the thinking is that it's OK for autoworkers or janitors to unionize because they're pretty much interchangeable from an educated upper-middle-class perspective. Teachers, though, are supposed to be "professionals," and any kind of solidarity among them offends an individualistic, meritocratic sensibility that believes in (often "objective") measures of evaluation.
