the Green Dot schools...They started with one charter school, now have
10, and in short order theyll have 20 schools in Los Angeles, with all
the teachers paying dues to a different union. And thats a
problem.--UTLA President A.J. Duffy
Steve Barr founded the Green Dot Public Schools, which currently
operate 10 high-performing, unionized public charter high schools. They
are about to start a new high school in New York in collaboration with
the UFT and its president, Randi Weingarten. Is Chicago next? How will local unions respond?
Klonsky will moderate a panel discussion with Green Dot CEO Steve Barr,
CTU President Marilyn Stewart, and IEA Executive Director Jo Anderson,
exploring the role of teacher unions in charter schools in Chicago and
other Illinois districts.
