SCOTUS ruling, reduced union cartel power, and implications for teachers and parents/students

Good stuff but I think Pullmann misses a big point that is more subtle and more long-term: She notes that reduced union power will make teachers more vulnerable to government school districts in their monopsony positions (as the primary renter of particular labor services).

Of course, teachers frequently beg to be put into this position-- by avidly advocating government as the monopoly provider of K-12 services. So, the long-term implication is that teachers will be less prone to advocate both monopoly over others and monopsony power over themselves.
