Unions help workers secure a living wage, health benefits, a pension, due-process and, in the case of education, academic freedom. Unions also help teachers fight for improved learning environments for their students and more classroom resources. I have sadly seen all of the above dwindle severely in the past decade.
Keeping the view of the current educational deformers in mind, I have created some images below. They envision how the current educational deformers (who blame teachers for poverty in the United States) might reinterpret the history of the Great Depression. In each picture below, with the exception of the last set, the original image appears on the left. The image on the right imagines a revisionist interpretation by the educational deformers.
