The Five States Where Teachers Unions Are Illegal Have The Lowest Test Scores In America*
Update: A commenter points out this fact uses test scores from 1999. Based on 2007 test scores the trend is weaker: NC is 47th; TX is 45th; SC is 39th; GA is 26th; VA is 25th. These rankings come from a composite of ACT and SAT scores among high school graduates, which is a measure that accounts for different participation rates.
From Tom Staudter:
The Five States Where Teachers Unions Are Illegal Have The Lowest Test Scores In America
Here’s an impossibly good statistic for union defenders, dug up by Maureen Downey at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Only five states do not allow collective bargaining for educators, effectively prohibiting teacher unions.
Those states and their SAT/ACT rankings are as follows:
- South Carolina – 50th
- North Carolina – 49th
- Georgia – 48th
- Texas – 47th
- Virginia – 44th
