Supreme Court’s Janus decision could change everything for our schools and kids

In 20 to 30 years, we may look back on this week as the turning point when everything changed for America’s teachers and their students.

The 5-4 high court decision in the case of Janus v. AFSCME (American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees) is a landmark victory for the First Amendment rights of 5 million public sector employees in 22 states. In addition, a great opportunity for serious school reform may be a consequence as well.
