Illinois Bill Would Force Schools to Teach the Greatness of Unions

Will they teach about how Unions have bankrupted so many companies and priced America out of the competition? How they have ruined our schools and made workers everywhere protected for laziness? Unions had a great grand start, but quickly become greedier and lie about what they represent today.
Check it out:

In January, a bill was introduced in the Illinois state legislature that would require schools to teach kids all about the marvels of unions.
Senate Bill 2682 was introduced by the 19th District’s Michael E. Hastings, a south suburban Chicago state senator, and would require the “study of the history of organized labor in America and the collective bargaining process” to be included in US history classes.

The new law would state that, “The teaching of history also shall include a study of the history of organized labor in America, the role of labor unions and their interaction with government in achieving the goals of a mixed free enterprise system, and the collective bargaining process.”
The Illinois Policy Institute’s Justin Hegy finds the conflict of interest to be a bit too much.

“Our students are presented with a government-run education system–managed by government workers who are themselves heavily unionized–which mandates a curriculum that glorifies the role of unions. Conflict of interest, anyone?” Hegy wrote.

Meanwhile, it is unions that have been driving the Land of Lincoln into bankruptcy with the overly generous retirement benefits that public employees routinely get in the state.
