Why Charter School Leaders Are Behind Attacks on Teachers Unions and Public Schools

If you ever wonder why famous charter school leaders like Eva Moskowitz or Steve Perry don't just run their schools quietly and let the results speak for themselves and instead devote much of their time attacking teachers, teachers unions and public schools, consider this. When the hiring freeze in NYC public schools was lifted a few months ago, a large number of charter school teachers applied for positions in NYC public schools, especially in high performing schools with principals known for treating their staffs well. These teachers couldn't wait to get out of jobs with long hours, no due process or job security and abusive administrators for positions in well run public schools. The hiring freeze is back on so the exodus of charter school teachers has temporarily ended, but you can see why a strong public school system, buttressed by strong teachers unions, is threatening to charters. The best teachers want to teach in well run public schools and be protected by unions. That could be why Eva Moskowitz is a major force behind the lawsuits attacking teacher tenure in New York City and New York State. If public education remains strong in New York City, she will not be able to hold on to her best teachers. Why

The charter leaders need a scenario where high quality teachers are forced, out of desperation, to teach at their schools. Thus, if Vergara and its knock-off lawsuits enable the public school administrators to ditch hundreds/thousands/etc. of veteran credentialed teachers or newcomers of quality, those same teachers will have to work for monsters like Eva or give up teaching.
