Only 5 states do not have collective bargaining for educators and have deemed it illegal. Those states and their ranking on ACT/SAT scores are as follows:I haven't verified these stats. But I do want to point out that teachers unions are often accused of looking out for themselves before looking out for their students. Perhaps the same should be said of union busters.
* South Carolina – 50th
* North Carolina – 49th
* Georgia – 48th
* Texas – 47th
* Virginia – 44th
If you are wondering, Wisconsin, with its collective bargaining for teachers, is ranked 2nd in the country. Let’s keep it that way.
Also, consider this--it's not so crazy--perhaps what's good for teachers is good for students.
