The problem is teachers’ contempt for their role.

The quotation John pulls from the article is worth highlighting:

JohnDePetroShow:  “A lot of districts that have contracts coming up are thinking about what this means if the unions are becoming more militant, if they’re not afraid of a judge, if they’re not afraid of being held in contempt, and if they think it can get them more,”

The disregard of the law is only an incremental worsening of the problem.  Teachers’ going on strike (especially for crass considerations like even higher pay and benefits) has always seemed shocking to me and one of the reasons their unionization seems wholly inappropriate.  If they don’t care about the harm that their unions do to children, why should they care about the law?
