Prof. Shelton quoted in Chalkbeat

Associate Prof. Jon Shelton (Democracy and Justice Studies) was recently quoted in a story about Chicago teacher union strikes.

“If you want to reopen schools, you pretty much can’t do it without the consent of your teachers,” said Jon Shelton, an expert on labor and school districts at the University of Wisconsin in Green Bay. “The power teachers unions have does not just come from contracts. It comes from members being able to take concerted action.”
