The Conference of Labor Educators

In this edited copy of this speech, Shanker speaks to the conference about tuition tax credits that are being proposed in the legislature. He maintains the view that tuition tax credits will ruin public education because the “wealthy” who can afford to pull their children out of public schools will, and therefore these credits will cause the demise of public education. Towards the end of the speech he addresses some union issues and the declining influence of the labor movement.
