Study: teacher's unions are bad for education

From Nashville's NewsChannel5 (Hat tip: Instapundit):
The AP discovered school systems without teachers' collective bargaining rights performed slightly better than those with negotiated contracts. Thirty-eight school districts don't have collective bargaining rights, and the AP found those systems averaged a higher percentage of students who earned proficient or advanced scores.
