While reformers had a great night last night, the unions most certainly did not. Their candidates lost in all the school board races and despite contributing millions of dollars to the pro-Amendment 66 campaign failed miserably.
For decades now, education reformers have been trying to battle the education blob unions created. The first defeat came when Douglas County put an end to negotiations and collective bargaining agreements in their districts. The second came last night in Colorado. Hopefully now the rest of the nation can continue to the fight and finally do away with union power and destruction of public education once and for all.
