Teachers unions’ shutdowns will backfire

By resisting reopening of schools during the pandemic, teachers unions unwittingly accelerated parental choice (“School Choice Advances in the States,” The Wall Street Journal, Mar. 30).  Education savings accounts, tax-credit scholarships, and vouchers are evidence that unions are losing public support.

Until they took an unyielding stand, parents tended to be in their corner.  But their patience has finally run out, as seen in West Virginia, Georgia, South Dakota and Arizona.  I support teachers unions, but I think they have shot themselves in the foot by failing to be more flexible.
