Contract Costs?

"U.S.
public schools could have as much as $77 billion more a year to improve
teaching if they reduced spending on seniority pay increases, teacher's
aides, class size limits and other measures often found in teacher
union contracts, a new study contends," according to this Washington Post article (Cutting Provisions In Union Contracts Could Free Funds).  "The provisions
include salary increases based on years of experience or educational
credentials; professional development days; sick and personal days;
class size limits; use of teacher's aides; and generous health and
retirement benefits."
