From a friend's Facebook note, "Only 5 states don't have collective bargaining for educators. Those states rank as follows, re: avg. SAT+ACT scores: South Carolina 50th, North Carolina 49th, Georg...ia 48th, Texas 47th, Virginia 44th. Wisconsin is 2nd.

Numbers are a bit old (1999), but interesting."

You get what you pay for. Go cheap on teachers & public services, and your children & state will suffer.
