Video: Chicago Teachers Union President Explains How It’s All About Union Power

Karen Lewis Union Power

Forget the children! Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis explained at a recent “Occupy Department of Education” protest in DC how everything they do is about amassing more power for the union.

She said all decisions must pass these qualifications:

- Will it strengthen the union?
- Will it unify the union?
- Will it build the union’s power?

Strangely, what’s good for students is missing from the equation.

She also suggested that those in attendence run for local office and school boards. You know, to help the unions continue to build power. Nothing about educating the children.
