New Teaching Topic

A new teaching subject could be started in Wisconsin.

The topics of collective bargaining and the history of unions in America were introduced in the Wisconsin legislature under a new proposal.

Labor unions are all for it. School groups aren't.

The bill, by Democratic State Senator Dave Hansen of Green Bay, would require every school board to incorporate the history of organized labor and the collective bargaining process into its curriculum.

Some argue a law is needed because current teaching on the subject isn't sufficient.

Wisconsin Education Association Council President Mary Bell says the topic is left out by teachers trying to cram in other required material.
