If the students are successful, then of course the union claims that the teachers must get all the credit. So, no sanctions for failure, but rewards for success - the essence of union groupthink.
Ironically, Emanuel and his fellow Democrats are only reaping what they have sown. They, as wholly owned subsidiaries of big labor, are the ones who allowed public sector unions to exist and to gain such power. They should not be surprised when the built-in conflict of interest bites them.
And the union knows that both Obama and Emanuel don't want this to drag on - they can't afford the distraction, not to mention the potential cooling of labor support, with the presidential election about 50 days away.
Chances are, Emanuel is going to have to cave. Then we will find out what the cost will be for those who are really disrespected, and who are the real victims. Here's a hint: It is not the teachers.
