Main Article Content
The intention of this special issue is to draw together a range of interesting contributions that are able to situate developments in K-12 teacher unions at a time of momentous historical significance. The particular historical juncture in which we find ourselves presents huge threats both to the quality of public education and to teachers' working conditions-perhaps on a scale unprecedented in the lifetimes of most teachers, and certainly most students. However, within those threats there are also opportunities, and the contributions in this special issue are intended to help us understand and explore where such opportunities exist.
