Study: HSTA Strongest Teachers Union in America10/29/2012
Hawaii is No. 1 in at least one area of education: Strongest teachers union in the nation.
The study ranked the country's teachers unions based on five areas: resources and membership; involvement in politics; scope of bargaining; state policies and perceived influence. Hawaii was first in only one of those categories — involvement in politics — but the weighting formula used by the researchers made it the highest overall.
